International Mother Language Institute


Declaration of 21 February as the International Mother Language Day by the United Nations on 17 November 1999 is an unprecedented event not only for the Bangla language but also in the history of all mother languages of the world. In a historic meeting commemorating this achievement on 7 December 1999 the honourable Prime Minister of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina announced that an international mother language institute would be established in Dhaka for the research and the preservation of the dignity and the rights of augmenting/expanding as well as nearly extinct languages of the world. According to that declaration, she laid the foundation of the International Mother Language Institute (IMLI) at Segunbagicha , Dhaka on 15 March 2001. The then Secretary General of the United Nations Kofi A. Annan was present on that occasion. Honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the newly constructed building of the International Mother Language Institute on the Martyrs’ Day and International Mother Language Day, 2010. Since then, the International Mother Language Institute is moving ahead with its set mission and vision.
