To spread the ideals of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman among students, bKash will distribute 20,000 copies of the graphic novel “Mujib” in 500 Bengali and English medium schools across the country this year.
The mobile financial service provider has taken the initiative to mark Mujib’s birth centenary and golden jubilee of the country’s independence, said a press release.
Under patronisation of bKash, the graphic novel, published by Center for Research and Information (CRI) and based on Bangabandhu’s autobiography “Oshomapto Attojiboni (The Unfinished Memoirs)”, will be distributed in schools by Bishwo Shahitto Kendro (BSK).
bKash will expand the programme with support of BSK to more schools, after publication of next editions of the graphic novel.
BSK founder Prof Abdullah Abu Sayeed inaugurated the project by handing over the books to the school representatives at BSK Auditorium on Wednesday.
bKash Chief Executive Officer Kamal Quadir, BSK Trustee Arif Khan, and bKash Chief External and Corporate Affairs Officer Major General (retd) Sheikh Md Monirul Islam were present on the occasion.
Forty copies will be given to each school across the country.
