Banglalink, one of the leading digital communications service providers in Bangladesh, has joined forces with Facebook to train women with less access to digital facilities on how to participate in the digital world in a safe and responsible way. 

The recently launched campaign ‘Learn More, be More’ will train women from selected communities on how they can use Facebook for free. In addition to receiving the training, they will participate in educational workshops on health, safety, child education and saving money. Scheduled to be run till the end of December, the program will be held in 180 garment factories in Gazipur, Savar and Narayanganj areas.  More than 16,000 women will benefit from this initiative, a press release from Banglalink said. 

“We believe that one of the most effective ways of eradicating digital divide from the society is to ensure women’s participation in the digital movement. The campaign will encourage participants to explore the world of internet and embrace the digital way of life. We are grateful to Facebook for coming forward and being a partner in this great initiative,” Upanga Dutta, the Chief Commercial Officer of Banglalink said. 

As a part of Banglalink’s Digital Literacy Program, earlier it launched similar campaigns with Facebook and GSMA (the Global Mobile Industry Association), which saw significant outcomes in eradicating digital divide. In addition to providing customers with quality digital services, Banglalink will keep playing a pioneering role in digitalizing Bangladesh by building an inclusive digital infrastructure in the country, the press release said.
