Blogging in Bangladesh:
I received this email before the holidays and thought it was an opportunity for the NetSquared Community to share its knowledge.
(I have changed some of the spelling and order of words to make it a little easier to read):
Hi! this is Shahid Mallick from Bangladesh. I have had my graduation and MSS in Anthropology from Bangladesh and now I am working with a small NGO in Bangladesh. Our ongoing projects are ICT and women empowerment in this project. We are trying to disseminate information for women and children and provide very preliminary training on computing and use ICT. I am very much interest to use ICT for total social development. As you know Bangladesh one of the poor country in the world where literacy rate is 30 percent, though the government claims 60 percent, who only can draw their name, but don't know which one is what alphabet. And only 2.4 people read newspaper. However, we want to ensure access to information to poor and marginalized people and to create employment for economic and social uplift.
Please assist us how we can use ICT for social and you say blogging and other.
