Description

Poverty can compound challenges for people living with disabilities. This gift supports people living with disabilities to enjoy meaningful opportunities, restored relationships, and avenues to contribute to community transformation.

How your gift helps

For years, Ishika isolated herself from her community, embarrassed by a physical disability caused by a disease she suffered at a young age. That is, until she joined a Self-Help Group run by BASD, Tearfund’s local partner in Bangladesh.

Encouraged by BASD’s staff, she received training in business development and leadership which stirred a hunger in her to reach her potential. Today, Ishika serves as the chair of her Self-Help Group and as an advocate for disability rights, and passionately educates mothers about early vaccinations to prevent the kind of disability she has.
