We went for a workshop at Dhaka International University today, which started at 10.15 am and ended at 1.30 pm. It was a great success as we got positive response from both students & faculty members who were present during the session. They showed their eagerness to do something for the society & and appreciated the fact that we have chosen their University for creating an alliance with Yunus Centre. The whole workshop has been conducted into 3 sessions and in the same way as we have done so far. More than 200 students were present today & we have collected the social business ideas (on the ongoing social issues of our country) from the students .We also informed the students about Social Business Day and asked the faculty members to create a social club. Furthermore they invited us to a national seminar on “Human Rights Education in Bangladesh”, which will be held on 19th May, 2012.
