Mosa. Rafiun Nahar, Assistant Director, Family Planning, Rajshahi, highlighted the innovative ‘Puthi’ developed by SERAC-Bangladesh and stated, “Due to various reasons, there are limitations in disseminating awareness-related information at all levels. These creative audiovisual tools created by SERAC-Bangladesh will further expedite our programs”.

Dr. Md. Amiruzzaman, Associate Professor in the Department of Drama at Rajshahi University, stated, “The regional identity of Rajshahi can be fully expressed by incorporating it into various types of songs. Furthermore, it is possible to consider how other traditions can be harmonized based on the opinions of the youth”.

Waliur Rahman Babu, Chairman of CCDB (Coastal Community Development Bangladesh), praised all the ongoing activities of SERAC-Bangladesh and stated, “Through such initiatives, the youth of Rajshahi are gaining awareness and skills.” He requested the Family Planning Department to take the initiative to ensure the continuity of this innovative program in collaboration with
SERAC-Bangladesh and other non-governmental development organizations.
In the keynote speech, Mr. Enamul Haque, Divisional Director of Family Planning, Rajshahi Division, Rajshahi, stated, “At various times, we have been adopting the step of creating awareness through technical means, which sometimes becomes challenging for the community members to comprehend. By prioritizing the regional language of SERAC-Bangladesh, the project aims to make information accessible and easily available to the youth in all regions.”
