History of ESAD

Brief History

ESAD (Ex-shaheens Association, Dhaka)

In March 2008, a group of former students got together and planned to organize the first-ever grand reunion of BAF Shaheen College Dhaka. To materialize the plan, they started working to form the Alumni Association as a result, the Ex Shaheen Association of Dhaka (ESAD) was formed in 2008. However, ESAD got its formal shape and official recognition in July 2010 through registration with the Ministry of Social Welfare. ESAD is a non-profit organization that aims to foster fellowship and goodwill among its members which includes individuals who attended BAF Shaheen School/ College Dhaka from 1960 until to date. The association started with 68 members in 2010 and has grown over the last decades and reached more than 2500 members to date.

During its formation stage, ESAD hosted the first ever grand reunion on 26 December 2008 at the School Premises. About 5,000 alumni, spouses, and teachers attended the reunion. ESAD also celebrated the Golden Jubilee of BAF Shaheen College Dhaka with its second on 25 December 2010 at the school premise.

Since its inception, ESAD is organizing different programs as a regular event which include a celebration of BAF Shaheen College Foundation Day, ESAD Re-union, Picnic, Bangla Nobo-borsho Celebration, Iftar get-together, Eid-reunion, etc.

ESAD played the leading role to form a social club for the former Students / Teachers of all BAF Shaheen School and College alumni, where they can go with their family members and friends to spend quality time. In 2019 with the initiative of ESAD with 5 other BAF Shaheen School and College alumni, Club Shaheen Limited (CSL) was registered and launched in Banani, Dhaka.

Besides programs and events, ESAD is committed to its limited capability to respond to any call on humanitarian grounds which includes financial support for the ex-students, and needy students, scholarships, and medical treatment support to the staff and teachers on a case-to-case basis. ESAD is committed to expanding and continuing its effort and support for such events in the future.
