20 April 2014, Dhaka. BRAC held its first online training session on advocacy, behavioral change communication and promotion (ABP) on April 10, 2014.
It was a joint initiative of Advocacy for Social Change (ASC), BRAC Leaning Division (BLD) and BRAC ICT. Opening enormous possibilities to expand training for all, this event was an excellent example of cross section cooperation.
Afsan Chowdhury, senior advisor, BRAC advocacy facilitated the session from BRAC Centrein in Dhaka while Kazi Monzur Hasan, senior learning facilitator, BLD, Uttara facilitated from BLC, Jessore. 27 participants from ASC, BEP, CEP, DECC, HNPP, HRLS, PSU, WASH, FPAB and YFPAD attended the session.
BRAC can now build capacity of many more people particularly from the field in this area with minimum cost. The future plan includes scaling up this training opportunity through BLCs by end of 2014.
