d) Support to the poor disabled students
 

The aim of this project is to encourage poor disabled students to achieve their education and also it will help to change gradually the attitude of the society towards disabled students.

Access Bangladesh provides tuition fees and other material support to extremely poor and meritorious disabled students. There will be a continuous monitoring and evaluation of the progress of each Sponsored Student. Access Bangladesh maintains a very close contact with schools to check examination results and discuss the progress of the students with their teachers.

 

e) Self Help Initiative of Persons with Disabilities

 

To ensure establishment of rights of persons with disabilities, community based approach is a must. Through this community program Access Bangladesh helps to form Self Help Groups by the disabled people themselves. Access Bangladesh facilitates this group through group meetings, discussion and training so that the group members can build their capacity to solve their own problems and improve the wellbeing of themselves and their families. Access Bangladesh also provides medical support and financial support to the stakeholders. To ensure community participation, it involves local government officials, media people and community people so that the mass people will be aware about their responsibility.

f) Faith and Light

 

This group consists of the children with disabilities and their parents. There is much linking these families together. They get together once a month to share their joys and sorrows and to do different activities. Access Bangladesh motivates this group to build a strong family base towards their children.
