Robi holds Internet4Youth session in Sylhet

Leading mobile phone operator Robi has organized Internet4Youth session under its Corporate Responsibility program at the Sylhet Divisional Public Library. Around 50 young male and females of Sylhet took part in the session.

The session was designed to promote responsible use of internet among youth. Through an engaging session, youth of Internet4Youth @ SylhetSylhet were informed about how to use internet to supplement their learning process and were made aware about how it could be used to help them plan their future.

Besides, live demonstrations were given on how internet could help them to search for contents and how they could use it to avail various government services. The audience was also informed about how they could use the free internet platform “Internet.org”.

Under Corporate Responsibility initiatives, Robi has already set-up internet corner in all the divisional public libraries of the country where people can use internet for free. The Internet4Youth session will be replicated in other parts of the country in future.
