2nd Digital Khichuri Challenge winners plan to combat fake news
The winners of the 2nd Digital Khichuri Challenge, held in Jessore, identified the scourge of fake news in Bangladesh causing communal, social tensions and violence, and outlined a plan to combat it both offline and online. The three-day Digital Khichuri Challenge was held in Jessore from December 19-21. A group of 20 students were chosen from Jessore and surrounding areas for the challenge.

The work began on December 19, with the students split into five groups of four, sharing their initial thoughts about the problems prevalent in their communities and its potential solutions. Mentors and facilitators helped refine the initial ideas, invigilated brainstorming sessions and brought efforts closer to the theme of the Challenge. Each group was required to come up with two separate pitches for the panel of mentors who would then pick the best one. The final presentations were made on 21 December to a panel of judges from the UNDP and ICT division. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) along with Facebook and the ICT division of the Bangladesh Government launched the Digital Khichuri Challenge in 2016. The aim of the challenge is to promote crowd-sourcing, inclusive narratives, peaceful communities and tolerance.
