The Organization makes posters, publicity on the promotion of democracy and public awareness against anti-social activities such as vandalism, destruction of public and private properties and promotes rule of law and sound governance by creating awareness among mass population.

 

Building Good Citizen Program:

Bangladesh has confronted with a great deal of diverse challenges. Because of unemployment, deterioration of the quality of education and with the decaying of moral values at social and national levels, we have been plunging into a dark epoch. The students and the young find themselves into a deep gloom and aimless condition. Being misguided, they have chosen the way of drug addiction and terrorism. As a result, the trend of civic crime has been looming large. The moral fabric of the society has been on the verge of collapse due to slow destruction of potential of the young generation. A socio-economic crisis has already been emerged as an evil syndrome to our society.

Regarding this situation, Sheba Bangladesh Foundation has been undertaking a program entitled ‘Building good citizen through youth leadership development’ at grassroots level. This program is being implemented by seminar, roundtable, training, workshop and rally aiming to bring the students and the young generation to the right way for their survival. Since the students and the young of today will lead our nation in future.

The ingredients of the program are as follows:

  1. Insert family, social and religious values to ensure ethical development
  2. Create youth mindset to know own history, culture and heritage
  3. Orientation with core themes of constitutional rights, human rights, good governance, gender equity and inter religious dialogue.

The experience and knowledge accumulated from this program will provide the students and youths a candid way to their lives and consequently they would be well-prepared and proactive enough to build a vast youth network that would facilitate strengthening the crisis management as well as development at national level. Consequently, they will play a pragmatic and sustainable role in dealing with development issues in the collaborative efforts of every quarter at local levels.
