Educo Bangladesh believes that recognition is an important component of development which increases motivation, self-esteem and reinforces the efforts. It also inspires others to feel connected to the initiatives and continue their involvement.

Along with them, a total number of 108 ECD facilitators from 4 PNGOs (BTS, MSEDA, IDEA & Prochesta) participated in the program. The program was organized through activities like experience sharing, cultural program, quiz competition & oath.
