As part of English Language promotion program, VAB launched a telephone conversation program between urban and rural students. The program has been initiated with volunteers from East-West University at Dhaka. Twenty-six volunteers have been assigned to talk to twenty-six high school students.
Prior to the program, the Country Director addressed a group of students, primarily of the Department of English, at East-West Campus and explained the program.
Apala Biswas and Farhana Islam, lecturers in the department, did a very commendable job in organizing the meeting. Seven or eight members of other teachers also joined. Tasnuva Marium, a student of English department, aptly conducted the meeting. The Country Director expressed great satisfaction to see about 50 students opting to hear about volunteering. He also expressed his gratefulness and appreciation to the Vice-Chancellor and the Head of the English Department for their support and encouragement.
