Advancing the dialogue around autism awareness and inclusive education in Bangladesh.
BNGLDSH, short for Bangladesh, is a charity formed to complement The Autistic Children's Welfare Foundation of Bangladesh and Autism Speaks. While there is an efficient and inclusive education system for children with special needs in place in the United States, many developing nations, including Bangladesh, do not have supportive and accessible programs -- some nations do not have any programs at all.
In fact, autistic children in Bangladesh are considered "cursed" by the devil. Yes, you read that right. We have to change the conversation, reverse the stigma and inspire those who have the power to influence the education systems in Bangladesh to consider the educational opportunities of all people.
