Dr Kal Karim discusses 'The Importance of Education in Developing our Community' on Vision 2030

Kal was a guest panel member on Channel S TV on Monday 29th January on SKY 814 discussing “The Importance of Education in Developing our Community – Vision 2030”.

Vision 2030 is a community development talk show of the Bangladeshi Regeneration Council working in partnership with Channel S. The aim of Vision 2030 is that by 2030, the Bangladeshi community is no longer regarded as one of the most disadvantaged and deprived social groups.

Challenges currently faced by the Bangladeshi community are:

  • 28% live in deprived neighbourhoods
  • 65% of families are living in low income households
  • 58% of Bangladeshi women are not in employment
  • 40% of men are in low skilled employment
  • The community has the lowest level of English language proficiency.

Kal says “We discussed many topics that affect our community and deliberated on how we could use our knowledge, and experience to help the community overcome some of these barriers in education for children and adults”

Anam Choudhury, Presenter of Vision 2030, says “This is not acceptable especially to the third generation of Bangladeshis. This is why we have introduced this show so that by connecting with the community at large, we can identify the real issues and work towards finding local and national solutions to our community's problems”.
