COVID-19 has changed the face of the entire world in the past couple of months. It has gravely affected the lives of thousands and livelihoods of millions of people from all sections of society. But the most affected, by far, are the people from the underprivileged sections. I reflected on the conundrum, whether there is any disease worse than hunger. The situation of the underprivileged section is heart-wrenching. Fueled by the urge that something had to be done to assist daily wage workers who struggle to acquire essential commodities, including food items, in these trying times, I embarked on the journey of raising funds for them.
We are so excited to announce that “WoW-Wheels of Wisdom”, a GYM Local Solutions funded project in Bangladesh, is one of three winners of the 15th EIFL Library Innovation Award.
