Telenor, Grameenphone, and Plan International have collaborated on the “Digital Inclusion: Safe Digital Space for Girls and Youth Project,” aiming to empower over 2.35 million marginalized women and youth. This initiative focuses on enhancing digital literacy, skills, and resilience, and creating a safe online environment for individuals facing socio-economic challenges.

During a three-day visit to Savar, Sylhet, Moulvibazar, and Sunamganj, representatives engaged directly with project participants to understand how access to digital tools positively impacts their lives. The project seeks to bridge the digital divide and create equal opportunities for marginalized communities.

The initiative targets eight marginalized populations, including ethnic and religious minorities, people with disabilities, tea garden workers, transgender individuals, those affected by climate change, female-headed households, street children, and others identified by the National Social Security Strategy. It provides training on digital skills and online safety through in-person sessions, awareness campaigns, and radio programs tailored to local needs.
