Bangladesh Debate Warriors (BDW) started their first working experience with the underprivileged kids of JAAGO Foundation from February’16. Since then they have been working to train a group of senior batch students of our Rayer Bazar School to sharpen their skills in debate. Gradually a Debate-Club in our JAAGO Rayerbazar school was established titled: JAAGO-BDW School of Debate.
After only 1.5 months of training, 6 kids of our Rayer Bazar School branch participated in the ‘Prottoy Debate Festival-2016’ held at IUBAT Dhaka on 1st May, 2016. For the first time in Uttara, ‘Prottoy Debating Club’ (a renowned debating club of Dhaka) organized this, inter-school & college debate tournament in association with IUBAT Language Club where 10 renowned educational institutions participated.
In the daylong debate competition, the topic for the finale was: ‘স্ত্রী-বাচক শব্দগুলোই নারীদের অবমূল্যায়নের জন্য মূলতঃ দায়ী’. And guess what! The ‘JAAGO-BDW School of Debate’ team became the Runner-Up at the grand finale competing while the prestigious RAJUK Uttara Model College Debating Club stood as Champion.
We thank all our supporters, well-wishers on this great achievement day for us!
