Like many countries in the developing world, Bangladesh Dhaka has seen an enormous increase in the number of Internet users in the last few years.
That’s why it’s exciting to welcome the Internet Society Bangladesh Dhaka Chapter, which officially opened its doors on July 20th.
The Chapter, which was rejuvenated after a few years of dormancy, is full of fresh ideas, new skills, and active members.
These members are dedicated to helping the citizens of Bangladesh Dhaka in the following for areas:
- Bridging the digital divide by enabling Internet access and promoting the use of localized contents;
- Providing education related to technical and social aspects of Internet through seminars, workshops, and training;
- Building Internet related awareness and formulation of policies;
- Fostering research.
Due to the large increase in Internet users over the past few years, the Chapter will also focus its efforts on making sure the people of Bangladesh Dhaka can create or have access to local content in their own language. As with many countries, this lack of locally relevant content is considered one of the top barriers when it comes to Internet use.
