  • Message From Chairman

    NDF BD was brought to life to give the debaters living every single corner of Bangladesh a platform where they could grow and flourish, engaging their full potentiality in Debate and Public Speaking, leadership training, community service and a handful of skill developing activities. Our dream was to break down social and economic barriers that were slowing down the progress of becoming a logical Bangladesh. Since the beginning, NDF BD has tried to engage young students in its debate and public speaking competitions, debate school, debate festivals and workshops. As for decentralization of NDF BD's activities, debate festivals are being in almost every division of Bangladesh. It is my utmost pleasure and honor to be able to present National Debate Federation Bangladesh (NDF BD) world wide. The whole vast team of about 450,000 existing members has shown tremendous effort and enthusiasm in making NDF BD a successful and pioneer debate organisation of the country. I, on behalf of NDF BD, would like to thank all the people who have been affiliated with NDF BD for all the good wishes and support.
