Good see your mail. I hope the mailing is working as a bridge with us to
development partnership and understanding.
I saw the team page of Bangladesh which created by BdOSN. I love to work
with BdOSN. In previous year we had our name ( Participatory Research &
Action Network-PRAN) in BdOSN page. But did not get any support or
campagin mattrial from BdOSN or SFD team. this is fact we have
celebrated the day without any support.
From our last year experience we are afraid to celebrate day with any
other. But I am member of BdOSN and want to work with you.
I have plan to celebrate the day at district town of Noakhali where
youth, professional, media peoples, telecentre, NGOs will participants.
At the same time we would like to arrange various action and fun in NSTU.
Celebration of the day is important for us. So if you support us then we
have no objection to join with BdOSN. I hope it'll more strengthens for
OSS campaign. You can add us in BdOSN team page.
Please, keep in touch. and update us with idea, matrial and resources.
Thanks for your time
