Bengal Boi

Bengal Boi is a community reading initiative which was incubated by Bengal Foundation in 2017. Keeping in mind that many children and young adults may not have the opportunity to associate with books and develop reading habits at an early age, Bengal Boi has cultivated a supportive outdoor environment with free access to books, and tables and chairs, and an indoor bookshop.            Boi draws about fifteen hundred young people every day, and has become a place where families can socialise and freely participate in reading and story-telling sessions. Many parents have attested in interviews how the immersive arts experience at Bengal Boi is making a big difference in the lives of young people in downtown Dhaka.
