Congratulations! Mohammed Redwan Chowdhury, a 6th semester student of the BSS (Economics) program, was invited by the U.S. Embassy in Vietnam to mentor the NGƯỚC’s empowerment Program 2021.
At the invitation of the American Center in Hanoi, he had the privilege to work as a mentor with NGƯỚC. It is a social organisation that demonstrates youth’s positive impacts on public interests in social justice, volunteerism, culture, & climate preservation.
NGƯỚC’s empowerment Program 2021 final round started on 4th November. It is an internal initiative for youths to practise civic engagement and hone their project management skills. The program has announced the results of nine finalists divided into three small teams. The final round challenge is to finalise their social projects in Vietnam & ASEAN countries and apply for funds and grants from NGUOC Empowerment Program.
Mr. Redwan mentored an online platform initiative named SJP (Social Justice Project). He co-chaired the mentorship panel with candidates from USA, Brunei, Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia. The finalist in SJP pitched ideas about tackling global warming and gender discrimination through various approaches. Some of the highlighted ones were awareness campaigns throughout the rural parts of Vietnam, arranging workshops for coastal area people in tackling natural disasters and art exhibitions. Through the quantitative method, the team predicted to reach 100,000 people by the end of 2024.
As Mr. Redwan worked with the underprivileged community in Bangladesh, his on-field experience helped the team plan smoothly from theory to actual practice. The event received positive remarks on their genuine ideas and in-depth analysis.
