Concerted efforts stressed to make youths enlightened


RAJSHAHI, Nov 19, 2017 (BSS) – Speakers at a discussion here unanimously called for making the young generation enlightened so that they can build the local government institutions and the society as transparent and accountable.

They viewed all the government and non-government organisations concerned should come forward and work together towards strengthening the level of confidence of the youths to make them fit for social works.

The observation came up in the closing session of a four-day training course for youths styled “Transparency, Accountability, Inclusiveness and Citizenship” at Postal Academy in the city yesterday afternoon.

The Hunger Project Bangladesh (THPB) organised the training in association with ‘Promoting Democratic Inclusion and Governance through Youths (PRODIGY)’ project and British Council.

A total of 36 youths both male and female are taking part in the training.

Ward Councilor of Rajshahi City Corporation Md Quamruzzaman, Field Coordinator (Monitoring and Operations) of PRODIGY Subrata Kumar Paul and its Programme Officers Joynal Abedeen and Masum Russel addressed the session.

The training includes several individual and group presentations on social issues through which participants will demonstrate their creativity and communication skills.

Quamruzzaman said there was no alternative to training to enhance professional skills among the youths and make them enlightened citizens of the county.

He also put emphasis on equipping the youths with modern knowledge for making them worthy citizens of the nation.
