Radwan B. Chowdhury, Ph.D.
Radwan Chowdhury is a Bangladeshi-American, a philanthropist, activist, author and a bona-fide visionary. He is the Founder & CEO of UDiON Foundation, he believes “Education is the best way to end the cycle of poverty and the exploitation of children” he strongly believes “Illiteracy is the birth place of poverty”. Realizing that there must be something terribly wrong with the society we live in, this inspired him to commit himself and his dream is the total eradication of poverty from the world.
Radwan has spent time in the field with the various livelihood promotion programs in South Asia. During his years of association he concentrated on the study of the direct economic management role of government. Driven by a passion for social impact, he has worked for social policy, immigration, and refugee integration.
Although he have been blessed to have distinguished academic careers, his most challenging and fulfilling mission to date is the total eradication of poverty from the world and educating and leading Asian Americans (AsAm) in exercising their right to vote in a cohesive bloc fashion to bring about the democratic changes they wish to see. He’s dedicated to the unfinished work of “Equal Opportunity and Justice for All”. The deprivation of equal opportunity and rights to any ethnic or minority group saps this great nation of ours with maximum potential. He regularly provides mentorship to future leader’s in USA as well as in Bangladesh and has spoken to many seminars and conferences nationally and internationally.
He authored 3 books, poetry book “Bristmito Potuvumi” published at the book festival on February 2013, a cook book “Exclusive Test Around the World”, and a science fiction “Tenacity of Human Mind” both will be published in February 2014 at the Book festival, while he’s working on his rural development and public education “NGOs Order and Diversity”. read more @
