Meta to train BRAC's 1,000 frontline staff on digital skills development
Meta, formerly known as Facebook, has partnered with BRAC to empower Bangladeshi women and youth on digital platforms. A skills development program has been launched in its first phase to train 1,000 frontline staff of BRAC who will then upskill 300,000 BRAC program beneficiaries. The initiative will also equip 60 Youth Ambassadors from BRAC's Amra Notun Network to engage 1,200 young people to become more aware digital citizens.
Meta will work with BRAC to upskill women and youth with the information, tools and resources they need to have a positive experience online. This includes a social media campaign to increase awareness among Bangladeshis about the digital landscape.
Sabhanaz Rashid Diya, Meta's Public Policy Lead for Bangladesh has said that this partnership will deepen Meta's work on addressing the needs of women and youth on our platforms by leveraging BRAC's extensive network.
