LEADS took the students on a study tour of the “Shahid Budhijibi Smriti Shoudha” on December 14, 2009, in observation of the Shahid Intellectual Day in Bangladesh. This was part of regular study tours arranged by LEADS.
Through this tour, the children learnt more about the liberation war of Bangladesh 1971, about the martyrs, the life of the intellectuals, and how they were brutally killed during the war. This gave them the chance to know more about their history and culture, while develop a sense of patriotism in them.
On August 10, 2009, LEADS arranged an Eid Reunion for the children at its premises. The children wore their eid dresses, watched movies and cartoons, shared their eid experience, and sang and danced with each other to enjoy the ocassion.
