Shidulai Swanirvar Sangstha a shame for ict4d community and media of Bangladesh and global award announcers

Dhaka

I am really surprised to read the recent posting on the malpractices of a Bangladeshi NGO. We are really shocked to introduce ourselves that we belong to this community.

How come an organization can bag two of the international prestigious awards with such false interventions? With whom we are playing such nasty game? From my childhood I was feeling proud that my country is full of river and boats are one of the major attractions of many of our childhoods. But doing such corrupted business with river and boat is really an innovation!! Shame for such innovation!

Persons with disability can overcome their every sort of limitation via ICTs. The traditional assumption info-tech is only for some educated and physically capable people became wrong. Many researches and experiments have proved that by the blessing of IT we can empower disable persons. It does not a matter whether they are blind or suffering for other physical impairments.
