Banglalink and UCEP Bangladesh have signed an MoU to facilitate digital learning in the country
Banglalink, one of the leading digital service providers of the country, has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with UCEP (Underprivilege Children Education Program) Bangladesh to provide free data packages to students and teachers of UCEP General School.
This initiative will support UCEP's digital learning process by facilitating its new education model of the E-Study Group, according to a press release.
Erik Aas, CEO of Banglalink, and Md Abdul Karim, executive director of UCEP Bangladesh, signed the MoU on behalf of their respective organizations.
Under the arrangement, a selected number of UCEP Bangladesh’s teachers and students will receive free data for a year from the date of activation for online educational sessions.
“Banglalink always strives to step forward for supporting such impactful empowerment initiatives. We believe that every child deserves equal access to education, and a proper schooling system is one of the preconditions of ensuring it,” said the Banglalink CEO.
“UCEP Bangladesh is running an exemplary program with this objective, and we are happy to be a part of it as a socially responsible organization,” Aas added.
Md Abdul Karim said UCEP Bangladesh aims to provide learning opportunities to the underprivileged children and youth to address inequalities in education.
“We have adopted the E-Study Model to continue our students’ education through online classes and UCEP schools are still using these digital platforms. We want to thank Banglalink for their support and believe that both our teachers and students will benefit from this initiative,” he added.
The objective of this project is to promote e-learning and increase digital literacy, which is eventually facilitating SDG 4 (quality education) by ensuring inclusive and equitable education for all, Banglalink said in the press release.
Banglalink, being a socially responsible organization, is committed to supporting effective programs to facilitate social advancement and will continue to take more such initiatives in the future, it added.
Taimur Rahman, chief Corporate and Regulatory Affairs officer of Banglalink; Ankit Sureka, head of Corporate Communications and Sustainability; Mohammad Adil Hossain, head of Ethics and Compliance Operations and AML Program; Nazmun Nahar, director of Finance and Compliance at UCEP Bangladesh; and Shahariar Alam, deputy director of Resource Mobilization, Knowledge Management, and Communication at UCEP Bangladesh, were also present at the ceremony.
