‘I Positive’ – the name has a touch of uniqueness as well as a strong vibe around it. The idea behind it is a very simple one though – we need positive thinking people to bring positive changes in society. It is a youth-led organization that came to existence in 2011 at Thakurgaon to form a positive society based on the spirit of the Liberation War of 1971.
Shafiq, the founder of ‘I Positive’, firmly believes that spreading the spirit of the Liberation War will inspire the youth to form a better Bangladesh. With this vision, his organization arranges open discussions, exhibits film and arranges competitions and seminars based on the Liberation War. They wanted to recreate a society through different educational, cultural, sports and creative programs.
Since the inception, I Positive has been supporting children and youth in getting quality education and training. It has extended support to students regarding ICT training, career plan, educational materials, consultations and financial support. An online platform called ‘I Edu-care’ offers online education for the students living in remote parts of Thakurgaon district. Recently, I Positive initiated some environment and cleanliness programs in the city area of Thakurgaon. It also arranged several health camps for disadvantaged people.
I Positive encourages local youths to be a part of their initiatives. Interested youths can join as volunteer and take part in different initiatives for a certain period.
