Beyond Borders Bangladesh Restarts
Beyond Borders Sri Lanka have always taken great pride in the achievements of our extended family and we would like to share this news from the Bangladesh Core Group sent in to us by Naimur Rahman (kushal), Joint Publication Secretary of Beyond Borders Bangladesh, who comes with encouraging news of restarting the project after it has been decommissioned by the British Council.
“IT’S my immense pleasure to let you know that Beyond Borders Bangladesh (BBB) has started again with its rejuvenated vigor and zeal. As British Council Bangladesh is officially no more with us, we the BB members have decided to run Beyond Border by ourselves.
In our new phase of journey, we have Democracy Watch, a leading NGO in Bangladesh and partner organization of BB, who has extended its support that will ensure all kinds of logistical assistance for BBB.
We have (created an) executive committee (overlooking the activities of the group).
Advisor : Mr Minhaj
President : Saima
V. President : Rishad
General Secretary : Shukrana
BBB with its newly elected committee is organizing a ‘Youth Leadership Training Program’ for the young people aged 18-23. This training program is a two-month long program where there will be theoretical sessions on different topics like Democracy and Good Governance, Leadership,
Reproductive and Sexual Health, Culture and Heritage etc which will be followed by related field tours in different important places in Bangladesh.
After the training session and an interview process finally 30 were selected. The trainees had their orientation program on 11th August at the Democracy Watch premises. That Friday was a gala day for all the BBB members and the participants for the training program.
The enthusiasm we saw in each and every one’s face, gave our confidence a boost. We realized that we really can start AGAIN.
I, on behalf of Beyond Borders Bangladesh, am happy to share this good news with all of you
as we still believe that Beyond Borders is a family.
