Bangladesh Catholic Students' Movement holds a human development course

The National Executive Committee members of BCSM conducts workshops in Bangladesh.

The Bangladesh Catholic Students' Movement's National Executive Committee (BCSM) has been conducting several workshops on life and career orientations for students.

Like every year, the Christian Formation and Human Development Course 2024 for Intermediate and Secondary Education students is taking place in all of Bangladesh's dioceses.

Through this course, the National Executive Committee members of BCSM had the opportunity to share valuable information and conduct sessions for the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) candidates.

In Bangladesh, the Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education under the Ministry of Education conduct the Secondary School Certificate, a public examination. It is for 9th and 10th-grade students.

This year, the National Executive Committee members of BCSM visited Sylhet, Khulna, Dhaka, Barisal, and Mymensingh dioceses to enlighten the youths about the new chapter of their lives.

BCSM is present in eight Catholic jurisdictions—six dioceses and two archdioceses.

Founded in 1991, BCSM is a college movement for university-going Catholic students in Bangladesh. It has 30 units across the country with 1800 members. Its mission is to create a society of justice and peace through self-development and social change.

It promotes Christian values and motivates youngsters to uphold moral values. The country's Episcopal Commission for Youth and the International Movement for Catholic Students (IMCS) are affiliates.

The movement focuses on the development of its members and many social and charitable endeavors, such as blood donation, clothing distribution to the underprivileged, and visiting hospitals and slums.

BCSM also conducts various spiritual and educational activities such as retreats, bible courses, immersion programs with different socio-cultural realities, leadership seminars, and other allied subjects.

Bangladesh is a Muslim-majority country in South Asia. There are 162 million people, including 390,700 Catholics, who live in 105 parishes.


Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.”  Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
