Disability in development
In the development discourse, ‘disability and development’ is the issue of concern. Constitution of Bangladesh guarantees human right and equal protection for all citizens and it also forbids any discrimination among citizens. This statement claims that people with disabilities have equal rights and to enjoy equal opportunities like other advantage groups in Bangladesh. People with disabilities in Bangladesh are among the most vulnerable of the disadvantage group. They frequently regarded as unfortunate, inactive and blemished. Approximately 10% of the total population is disabled (12 million). People with disabilities are extremely vulnerable because they receive very few development assistances. It is visible that very few people with disabilities are involved in mainstream employment activities. Still now, potential people with disability are ignored from negative attitude of the mass people; they also suffer from scarcity of resources and lack of knowledge and skill. The people with disabilities are left out of the development process mainly due to lack of awareness of people who design and implement different development programs to address the rights of people with disabilities inside development. In this backdrop, Desh Chaetona try to develop capacity building on the issue of disability through awareness sessions.
