Challenge

In Bangladesh, there are around 50,000 children who are visually impaired or completely blind. Most of them are from poor families. They are the most excluded groups of people& belong to poor families, the children are generally used for begging as they have no hope. If they get are getting education, they may have a meaningful life. But there is no schooling support in their own community. So, BERDO is working towards addressing the problem through its two center located at Dhaka and Madaripur.

Solution

BERDO has set up two centers with one school and a hostel in each center located at Dhaka and Madaripur. This includes free lodging, food, medical services , counseling support, education, sports and cultural activities. It is a complete care house for lodging and schooling. More than 200 children are provided support in this residential Blind school.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help prevent begging or inhuman profession due to blindness. Given the key role that blind children play in the income of their families, the program will also contribute towards improving the overall quality of life in the society.
