Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) and Sesame Workshop Bangladesh (SWB), the proud producer of children's educational show 'Sisimpur', will collaborate to raise awareness about safe use of internet for educational purposes, and promoting safe internet practices among children and parents.

Sisimpur will also work on creating awareness about safe internet usage among students and teachers of 100 government primary schools under BTRC's 'Digitization of Education in Government Primary Schools in Underserved Areas' project. This initiative will be implemented under the 'Safe Internet for Early Childhood Development' project implemented by Sesame Workshop Bangladesh and funded by Internet Society Foundation.

In this regard, on Monday, a MoU was signed between Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) and Sesame Workshop Bangladesh (SWB). Lt. Col. S M Rezaul Rahman, PSC, Director, Signals, Systems and Services Division of BTRC and Mr. Mohammad Shah Alam, Managing Director of SWB, signed the agreement on behalf of their respective organizations.

This partnership promises to be a critical pathway towards achieving the vision of a Smart Bangladesh, as it will work closely with children, teachers, and communities to promote safe usage of internet for educational purposes among 3 to 8 years old children and communities in urban and marginalized communities of Bangladesh.
