Leading University is one of the most promising FSA recruitment institute in Sylhet division for Mozilla Bangladesh. But it is sad that only a few volunteers there are familiar with Mozilla Mission and philosophy. So, In last week club meeting we LU FirefoxClub has planned a campaigns for this Summer ’15 semester, which started with the Mozilla Awareness event to aware contributing volunteers as well as to attract NEW FSAs and encourage people to share what makes them say #FoxYeah! and turn that into content for the #FoxYeah hub .

We fixed a date and propose it to the University proctor body. After getting permitted by the University proctor and Head of the CSE department at first we LU FirefoxClub has started MozAwareness Booth at 18th June from 9am to 2pm. It was really great and had a massive response from the Leading University students.

We also discussed and decided to have a MozCoffee, at least once every month, to ensure a healthier interaction amongst the Mozillians in Sylhet. It was also decided to have more number of interested people for the upcoming MozCoffees, to acquaint them to Mozilla and its mission of keeping the web open and in the hands of the people. A Mozilla event is incomplete without some cool and awesome swag; we distributed MLS stickers to all the attendees and gave MLS cycling bag to the best MLS contributor in Sylhet who is Tushar Chakraborty at the MozCoffee.
