This year’s fellowship program began in August

Twenty three young political leaders of Awami League, BNP, and Jatiya Party graduated from the Young Political Leaders Fellowship Program on Tuesday.

Democracy International (DI) awarded the young political leaders with certificates on the occasion, at the Blossom Hotel in Dhaka.

The Young Political Leaders Fellowship Program is implemented by DI under the Strengthening Political Landscape (SPL) project, co-funded by USAID and UKAID. Over 250 young political leaders have graduated from the program since 2012.

This year’s fellowship program began in August, and the participants took part in monthly residential training workshops on topics including internal party democracy, campaign management, promoting peaceful elections, and strategic political communications. 

The young political leaders also worked across party lines to advocate the solving of key issues such as waterlogging, waste management, rehabilitation facilities for evicted hawkers, road reconstruction, and traffic congestion to senior party leaders in their respective districts.

During Tuesday’s graduation ceremony, the young leaders shared success stories of their cross-party initiatives, and stood together in support of a peaceful election and tolerant politics in Bangladesh.

Democracy International Chief of Party Katie Croake said: “All 23 fellows have been an inspiration to me throughout this program. They are role models for young people throughout Bangladesh who want to play a positive role in the political sector.”
