This world is currently hosting nearly one and half billion young people; among them around 50 million live in Bangladesh. This huge amount of young population demonstrates an immense potentiality / opportunity for Bangladesh. It is often stated that the shape, size and prosperity of tomorrow’s nation / world depends on the actions or development of today’s youth.
