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 in a safe and responsible way, says a press release.

The campaign, ‘Learn More, be More’, has been officially launched by Banglalink recently. Under this campaign, women from selected communities will receive training on how they can use Facebook free.

Besides, they will participate in educational workshops on health, safety, child education and saving money, the release said.

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, according to the release.

‘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 mode of life. We are grateful to Facebook for coming forward and being a partner in this great initiative,’ said Upanga Dutta, chief commercial officer of Banglalink.
