In Bangladesh about 1.8 core people (United Nations ESCAP Survey Feb 2011) with different sorts of disabilities live around us while we do nothing and keep silent as if to deny their existence in the society. Anyone who feels compassionate about them, perhaps, may send them to a distant rehabilitation center, far from their family. An unknown environment makes them feel deserted from society and family further segregating them from the society. A differently able child who may be in the wheel chair for the rest of his life can be refurbished in an institute under a medical guidance which is not only by medicine or by surgery but also by some special treatment like physiotherapy and occupational therapy which may not be available in the normal hospital or any other institute. These children also need special school where they can get treatment, care and motivation which a regular school can‟t provide them. So, there should be no doubt about the necessity of this project as it benefits that part of the society which has been neglected for so long.
