Digital Bangladesh is our dream. Our honorable Prime minister also dreamed a digital Bangladesh. In the meantime, Bangladesh government has taken to many initiatives to establish the dream. We found digitalization process has started in Everywhere in Bangladesh. A good number of professionals are working in this filed. IT sector will earn a huge quantity of foreign money in near future. Government has taken initiatives to educate a huge number of student on IT education. Not only that, government has declared IT education compulsory in primary to Intermediate level.  Now students are learning computer educating form primary school level. Curriculum has been developed for all level of education institute. However, a huge number of students who has pass out primary and high school level introducing time of computer education; they have no or little knowledge about the subject. Therefore, to achieve the goal we have to educate those peoples who does not get any scope to learn computer education.  Government and non-govt. organization of Bangladesh has taken long term and short-term education course for them. STEP is also providing this kind of education since 2002 in our working.

Bangladesh NGO foundations also taken initiatives to educate such kind of students or peoples. They have developed a computer training guideline and funding the partner originations to conduct computer training in their respective working area.
