Care and education for children with a disability in BangladeshOur mission
Niketan offers high-quality care and education for children with a complex disability in Bangladesh. We dream of a world in which children with complex disabilities are accepted and can join school. A world in which they can decide their own future. We believe that the best way to do this is through a holistic approach.
