A free five-day long computer training program was successfully completed by Southtech Limited for all the staff at Aloghar, a community library in Mirpur, Dhaka. In Bangla “Aloghar” means “a house of light”.
Aloghar is an initiative of DISA that started initially as a Child Rights Centre back in 2003 with the financial support of UCEP Bangladesh and Save the Children Sweden-Denmark. It is now a free library for both children and adults in the community. The main objective of the training was to train the staff of Aloghar so that they may help both children and adult users of the library to make best use of the Internet for their learning and for gathering useful information. Aloghar’s main goal is to provide quality educational services, communication and technological support and services to the community people for building up an enlightened community.
Upon completion of the program, Mr. Mohammad Shahid, Executive Director of DISA, had this to say: “We have just completed a 5-day training course where 8 staff attended. Trainer Mr. Kamrul Islam from Southtech was very cordial and hardworking and also very professional. Training was also very helpful for the participants as we have got very encouraging feedback from the trainees. They also enjoyed the training very much. Many thanks to you and to Southtech for this cooperation. Hope to get more cooperation in the future.”
Our CEO was happy that the training was well appreciated and said: “I am very happy that the 5-day training course has been conducted successfully and the staff of Aloghar found it useful. Internet is a powerful tool through which children as well as adults can learn many new things. Your initiative to help the local community surrounding Aloghar is inspirational and it has been our pleasure to participate in our own small way to bring more light in this wonderful place of learning. We hope that Aloghar expands and the torch of inspiration that you carry will bring light to many more lives in the future. We shall always be by your side in the cause of nation and community building.”
