What are our values? As we are the moral human beings of the universe and good citizen of Bangladesh, we should nurture some values. And our vision is that one day these values will spread to every corner of society. So to train ourselves, a daylong workshop was held on 9th July, 2010 at the Azad Muslim Public Library, Lalbag, Dhaka. The workshop was designed to create real social activists. It was unique in that it was activity-based rather than lecture-based and learning practically through fun.
The workshop was conducted in six sessions.
The first session was “Seeing is hanging”, where session leader Rowza tur Rumman talked about changing popular perceptions using media. The next session was “Achieving Your Childhood Dreams and enabling the Dreams of Others” was conducted by Mirza Salman Hossain Beg. He talked about the importance of imagination in fulfilling ambitions and aspirations in life.
