In Bangladesh, adolescents constitute around 22% of the whole population. However, there is yet to be a platform specifically designed that would enable them to interact socially with their peers, obtain academic help, and acquire life skills. Konnect aims to solve this and transform adolescents into a future-ready workforce through skills, education and counselling.
Konnect has over 38,000 content materials divided into different categories- books, skills, tests (science-subjects), comics, movies, and news; catering to the 300,000 registered users. Konnect organises live programs on Facebook aimed at the new generation of students to enable them to learn from and interact with experts on diverse topics.
The support of the Department of Secondary and Higher Education has ensured the participation of students across all educational institutions in phases. Konnect has been introduced in the Digital Technology textbooks as per the revised curriculum to emphasize ICT education, allowing 600,000 students of grades 6-7 from all schools, to enrol in and enjoy Konnect’s services. Konnect Mentor Teacher's Initiative was launched in 2023, where by 350+ teachers were selected from all over Bangladesh to participate in extracurricular activities at Konnect Clubs in their schools. This will help to connect with proactive adolescents who will be recruited via the clubs to be a part of future initiatives under Konnect.
