(Promotion of Human Rights for the Persons with Disability in Bangladesh)

A statistics of global consideration says that 10% of the total population is disabled and the figure is approximately 650 million of which 200 millions are children. These peoples are addressed as PWD(Persons With Disability). 80% of the members of PWDs are in developing countries who are not considered with significantly for their disability. For this reason UN convention reserves the rights of PWDs and asked the developing countries to take the issue in the streamline of nationwide consideration. The disability is the grouped as deaf, dump and lame. These are termed as physically challenged. The government of Bangladesh has taken a goo initiative in every stage of development activities either in government and non-government sectors.

Favorable environment is essential for inclusive of PWDs in the streamline of development. Through this project we are trying to build awareness among the members of PWDs as they can realize their rights as a social being and raise themselves in different forums. Besides this we are providing treatment, exercise and different therapy to the physically challenged peoples. We are providing support to the PWDs forming SHG (Self Help Group).
