Care and education for children with a disability in Bangladesh

Our mission

Holistic Approach

Everyone wants a good life. When you are a person with a disability you still have your own dreams and wishes for the future. That includes the opportunity to go to school and get education at your own level,with a teacher who understands you. But what if those schools do not exist and the specific knowledge is absent? For those children and young people in Bangladesh, Niketan wants to be there.

Niketan dreams of a world in which children and young people with multiple disabilities are accepted and can join school, a world in which they can decide about their own future.
