About Project

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Matin is creating broad-based programs to address the bottlenecks that impede young Bangladeshis from bridging the digital divide and benefiting from opportunities provided by the new economy. He is working to develop young people's English and IT skills in order to expand their employment opportunities. Matin focuses on providing students with an environment that supports, strengthens, and encourages English language learning. To sustain his program, Matin attracts students through a fee-based IT program, using the course funds to subsidize language development for groups that do not have access to quality standard English learning.
