Webinar for Bangladesh: A BSDI initiative to help needy during COVID-19

When the world is devastated by the pandemic coronavirus, Bangladesh is no exception. Many people have already become inactive due to the lockdown. They are not able to gather their food three times. Bangladesh Skill Development Institute (BSDI) and Future Leaders have teamed up to create a platform called ‘Webinar for Bangladesh’ to provide food for the needy.

The seminar was organized online through the platform. The platform has begun its journey from March 30, where country-wide trainers, speakers and leaders use technology to provide live interactive training through an hour-long online on various topics of skill development. Young people receive these training and improve their skills. The Webinar for Bangladesh has fixed donation fees for each session aimed at helping low-income people affected by the outbreak of Covid-I9 or coronavirus. The fee for each session is a minimum of Tk. 50 to 1000Tk. Proceeds from each session will be distributed through various charities, providing food for the poor. 

The event will be continued till Bangladesh is completely free from COVID-19, organizers said. Donations are being received through two bKash numbers which can be found through the webinar for Bangladesh webpage wfb.bsdi-bd.org. As a Strategic Partner for Webinars for Bangladesh, Bangladesh Organization for Learning and Development (BOLD) and DeGeneres Club of Chittagong are also in this project..

Organizers said that popular band ‘Beatles’ guitarist George Harrison and famous Indian artist Robbie Shankar organized a concert for Bangladesh to help the afflicted people during the liberation war of Bangladesh 1971. Inspired by this idea, Webinars for Bangladesh has decided to stand beside the suffering people of Bangladesh during the suffering in Covid-19.

Organizers believe that through the ‘Webinar for Bangladesh’ platform, young people will be able to ensure their mental well-being during these difficult times by developing skills from such experiences as technology, and donating in the face of distressed people in their donations.
