A programme on Archives Management Training was held on 20 July in Narandi Union Parishad.

Training was about:

  1. How to support the people using the Right to Information Act (RTI)
  2. How to develop & provide better (local) government services to the people
  3. How to give more value to laws and regulations in the country

A discussion about the development of archives and RTI Act, development of training programmes in ARM, digital archives, networkbuilding (FAB, BARMS, BARTIC etc.), historical awareness concluded the programme. In this discussion were present: MD Shahajahan, secretary at Village Court in Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD) Ministry, Sumon (UISC), Joy Ahamed (Student) and Ajaed Miha (Student).

Dutch BARM considers these activities as good examples for what several BarmS members, FAB members and BARTICK – members can do in several Union Parishads in Jamalpur, Dinajpur, Bogra, Khulna, Comilla, Rajarhat /Kurigram, etc.
