You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it

Moshal is a literary and cultural organization of Noakhali Science and Technology University established in 2014. I was one of the founding initiator and sole idea maker of this leading org. With the spirit of liberation war 1971, some youth of 2012, ’13 and ’14 session from NSTU initiated this org to explore art, culture and to run a movement for developing democracy, open-mindedness and humanitarian values among young minds of the university campus. My three years long contribution here includes designing organization’s sole impression in early days, documenting constitution, content writing, executive leading for three years, program designing and representing people’s words in a liberal and progressive art form. Here’s some Facebook album showing a glimpse what we did in early age.
Blood Donors Society NSTU
I co-initiated Blood Donors Society NSTU in 2014 with some of friends and seniors to raise youth humanitarian voice and commit to the welfare of the society. Thousands of people have been benefited with free blood donation from it’s beginning and it conducts awareness camp in local regions about health-related issues and continuously inspiring people to donate fresh blood. The amazing fact is this organization runs its activities using social media. This Facebook group is the heart of nstubds and people ask for blood in their need, our team connects them with donors through facebook comment section and all types of activities and updates are published here usually.
In summer 2017, I initiated organizing programming camps in suburban and rural areas called IQEP Initiative in Nokhali, Bangladesh. The objective of IQEP is to enhance ICT education and popularizing computer programming. This initiative started with a few undergraduate students of the Computer Science and Telecommunication Engineering (CSTE) Department of NSTU.
Since then we started to collaborate with local institutions for hosting camps and reaching students. In 2016, we mentored 150 students and in 2017-18, we planned to reach around 1000+ students covering 10-12 venues. Our programs like programming camps are designed for interactive learning, where we used to teach ICT textbook, share computing concepts, an intuitive intro to programming and workshop for strengthening mathematical reasoning among students to solve new problems and enjoy the computing fun. The fun part is, as most of the students are not privileged with a personal computer and institutions has a very limited computing lab, so we use smartphones for writing code and building staff!
