According to local sources, the rate of literacy is increasing in six upazilas of the district as RDRS, SERP,NNMC and Brac along with the government kept important role to remove the illiteracy. Once upon, the girls of Horizon, Robidas and Banshfor communities had no opportunity to go to schools. But now maximum girls of the communities are going to school. Mala Rani, Class Nine student of Nilphamari Samiruddin and College in Banshfor, said she and her two brothers were going to school now. But it was impossible earlier. Mala said when she was studying in class four, no Bangali student sat beside her considering her ethnic minority girl. But now the scenery has changed. The students of other communities sit beside her. She said it was possible for the role of NGOs. They made awareness among the people. People of Robidas and Banshfor communities told the Dhaka Tribune that the people of the areas got opportunity provided by the government. Bikrom Banshfur, father of Mala, said they were happy as their children now studied with other communities. Sultan Ali Shah, principal of the college, said no nation can develop by keeping its ethnic people faraway. Boisa Robidas, 47, said once upon a time the Muslim people did not allow them for talking with them. But now their children read with their children. Boisa added it was very pleasure to them that their children now had right  education and mutuality had grown among the Muslims and the Horizon people. Roisuddin Ahmed, an official Brac, said: “In Bangladesh, members of the low castes increasingly refer to themselves as Dalits – the downtrodden people –  have been exploited, oppressed and excluded through generations.” “We have been working for these people, specially to educate them for several years. But only NGOs cannot lead the drive. The government should take special steps to remove the darkness of illiteracy” he added.
