Washing up before the prayer

Photo: 
Summary: 

Using a hand pump, children wash themselves to prepare for evening prayers in Fazlul Umma Islamia Madrasa in Rayenda village of Sharankhola sub-district in Bagerhat district. Although education is free in government school up to grade 5, due to other expenses related to attending regular school like private tuition, uniform and textbooks, many families send their children to religious madrasa as alternative education.
