Robi has organized a session named “Internet4U” for the students of Presidency University under its Corporate Responsibility (CR) initiative. More than 100 students and faculty members took part in this engaging session. The students were made aware of the role Internet is playing in facilitating Digital lifestyle.
With the increasing demand for data, people are resorting to internet as a gateway to digital lifestyle. However, many of us, especially the youth, are failing to fully capitalize on this changing trend due to lack of awareness on the proper and effective use of internet. As a responsible operator, Robi has endeavored to address this gap with a CR initiative named “Internet4U”. The initiative attempts to introduce the college and university students across the country to “proper and safe” use of internet as a tool for networking, learning and self- development.
Previously similar sessions were conducted in Amrita Lal Dey College at Barial, University of Barisal, Daffodil University and in the Internet Corners set up by Robi at the Rajshahi, Rangpur, Khulna, Sylhet and Barisal divisional public libraries.
