Grameenphone has been working with Online safety since 2014 and has received recognition in many forms over the years. It was another feather in the cap when we received Hourarable mention by CSR award for our efforts and contribution in the space of online safety. Child online safety is an initiative that is driven across the country to keep children safer and become more digitally resilient online and provide resources for parents and guardians to create the eco-system that helps children grow and achieve their dreams. It’s about helping today’s children become future ready and we are very pleased to be recognized for all that drives the project.
CSR award is led by The Daily Star to team up with the CSR Window Bangladesh -- a platform that allows individuals, entrepreneurs, corporates, non-governmental or social organisations to bring ideas to life that benefit communities at large -- to recognise the impactful projects that can serve as benchmarks for the others. The award honors exceptional corporate social responsibility initiatives by companies, organizations and agencies.
