This project aims to secure a better future for children and youth with disabilities in Bangladesh by increasing access to health, education, and protection services for 13,000 children and youth with disabilities, particularly girls.

It also focuses on strengthening national health and education systems so that they are more inclusive. The project aims to give 3,000 children with disabilities greater access to education, improve the capacities of 1,200 teachers to include boys and girls with disabilities in their classrooms, and educate 6,500 community members on disability issues.
