About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

In Bangladesh government runs only one primary school in each ward at Dhaka city. There is lack of trained teachers to cooperate disabled children in government run primary schools. Almost all people of slum dwellers are migrated to Dhaka for finding out source of survival. Among them people with disability are the most vulnerable. The literacy rate among disabled people in the slum community is unquestionably low. Moreover, the multiple disabled those who have CP, autism, intellectual and hearing impairment, are excluded from mainstream education in the slums.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Community schools in the slum area can bring these children in the education system help to prepare disabled children for Inclusive education in the slums in Dhaka city. The teachers of these schools are disabled members of Self Help Groups (SHG) and are also student at higher secondary level education. They feels these students as their family members and teach them pre-schooling education along with paintings, cultural activities and sign language.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Here the drama "Manchitro O Babodhan" ( i.e. The Teritory and Difference) on Education Rights is being played at field level to National Children's Drama Festivals. Through this cultural participation of Disabled children and their family are willing to get education.

These schools are run by Disabled Peoples’ Organization, the teachers are disabled members and the education is free of cost.

Social Impact
What has been the impact of your solution to date?

After one year pre-schooling, one-third students among 110, were ready to get mainstream school admission. But the teachers were too negative to admit them. The pre-schooling education prepared them to qualify at the admission test. Now they are learning in government run primary schools. And few of them who can afford private primary schools’ education send them to there.

What is your projected impact over the next 1-3 years?

The participants of Art Workshop 2005 are now leading the children activities now. They are now facilitating cultural events for example drama show, paintings and sports events in local area to national events. Here the drama "Manchitro O Babodhan" ( i.e. The Teritory and Difference) on Education Rights is being played at field level to National Children's Drama Festivals. Through this cultural participation of Disabled children and their family are willing to get education.

Founding Story: We want to hear about your "Aha!" moment. Share the story of where and when the founder(s) saw this solution's potential to change the world [125 words]

Rahima is a community teacher who had received basic knowledge on "Drawing" from an Arts Workshop and then she got an opportunity to implement her skill at Muktir Shongram Inclusive Pre-School. Agropothik Protibon Unnoyon Shongstha Pre-School is the " Example".
Agropothik Protibon Unnoyon Shongstha Inclusive Pre- school is at Badda, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The classroom capacity is about 30 students. The expected students number is about 50 at the end of 2 year Project duration because the slow learners will not get opportunity in local mainstream schools and they will be in this pre-school in 2nd year with new students. After her sincerity to teach disabled children, half of the students have got admission in local primary schools.
