Bangladesh is one of the highest densely populated countries in the world where about 950 people are living per square kilometer. United Nations estimate of a disability prevalence rate 10 percent in Bangladesh. In the proposed project area, every aspect of life for the persons with disabilities (PWD) is ignorance, fear and superstition that usually result in their direct neglect. Due to this neglect they are excluded from the normal economic, social, cultural and political activities of their families and communities. Women with disabilities are especially vulnerable to social discrimination and neglect in the country.-Akash
Discrimination begins in the home; parents of PWDs often are of them and want to hide from society. The family members ashamed and community people treat them as an economic burden and do not explore their tremendous potentialities. PWDs in Bangladesh are only the poorest of the poor, but are the vulnerable among all the vulnerable groups. They suffer poverty, un-empowerment, gender discrimination, illiteracy, malnutrition, poor health and sanitation facilities, lack of treatment, environmental barriers (Physical, socio-religious and cultural attitudes and practices) and inaccessibility to resources and development.
