As Bangladesh is one of the most disadvantaged developing countries
in the world. It is continuing with poverty, illiteracy, lack of
health facilities and other basic rights, which mark our national
life adversely. Therefore, it has become the responsibility of all
to build an infrastructure of a prosperous Bangladesh. The government
has initiated different programs for our national development. But
it is very difficult for the government alone, to achieve an ultimate
success. As such, initiative and cooperation from both the public
and private sectors is essential. An integrated effort could only
make it a success.
In response to the above circumstances, BDDT has come forward and
started working through some humanitarian initiatives. BDDT is an
Organization, working in the community to uphold the basic human
rights for all. Our main focus is to improve the ultimate living
condition of the disabled persons, disadvantaged, distressed, poor
and the people in social discrimination. Children are the most important
and prime stakeholders of BDDT.
BDDT is basically a resource organization committed
to explore and mobilize available resources for betterment of the
persons with disabilities of the country. This organization has
a wide range of experiences to demonstrate innovative approaches
towards consolidating disability movement of Bangladesh.
