World Vision Bangladesh and The Daily Star jointly present to you "Hidden Hero" - a video series where we portray real stories of ordinary people with extraordinary impact during this global pandemic.
In the Third Episode, we look into the life of Rahul, who has been an integral part of World Vision growing up. Joining World Vision Child Forum back in 2008, Rahul is currently the President of Sundarban Theater – an organization that uses cultural performances to raise awareness on numerous issues like child rights, early marriage, drug addiction, etc. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Rahul and his diligent team used similar performances to raise awareness about the importance of social distancing, wearing face masks, and other necessary precautions.
Rahul sets a phenomenal example of creating large scale awareness using cultural performances and reaching a wider audience base by harnessing the true power of the internet. World Vision has significantly shaped up Rahul's prowess as a cultural performer during his period at the organization's Child Forum. To the people of his hometown and beyond, Rahul has emerged as a Hidden Hero - an ordinary person who has risen to make an extraordinary contribution, empowered by the proven experience of World Vision.
