The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has joined the book donation initiative of bKash to facilitate the underprivileged children.

A number of books were officially handed over to bKash at BGMEA's office on Thursday, said a press release.

At the same time, a book collection booth was set up at the Uttara office of the organisation.

BGMEA President Faruque Hassan handed over the books to ATM Mahbub Alam, Head of Pay-Roll Business of bKash. Senior officials of both the organisations were present at the moment.

Members of the organisation will be able to donate books at the booth set up at the Uttara office of BGMEA.

bKash will collect books from visitors, writers and readers at Bangla Academy Book Fair, books donated by customers at bKash customer care centers and outlets of selected super shops across the country and also donate books from its own fund.

Like previous year, bKash will distribute books to various organizations including schools for underprivileged children, a number of primary schools, libraries and old age homes.

BGMEA took part in this initiative to further encourage book donation for the underprivileged children.
