Project DPro Success Story: Abdullah Al Noman

Project DPro Success Story: Abdullah Al Noman

PM4NGOs, Project DPro

Name: Abdullah Al Noman
Contry: Bangladesh
Study: Self-Study

“My name is Abdullah Al Noman.
I am a 24-year-old boy studying in Khulna University Business School. However, I am actually from Dhaka which is the capital city of Bangladesh. Staying far away from my home taught me several life lessons. Point to be highlighted, it offered some career insights too. Now, I am writing to express my journey in becoming a PMD Pro certified.
I would like to commence with why. How I made it will be followed later. Bangladesh is an emerging country with a lot of economic, social and political barriers. It is not an affluent country, not even close.

Moreover, more than a million rohingya found shelter in refugee camps who fled from the neighbor country, Myanmar. They are residing in  Teknaf And Ukhiya Upazila around Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, which is now home to the world’s largest refugee camp. As a humanitarian response, a noteworthy number of NGOs are trying to help them. We need more development works for the sake of our
country.
