Australian High Commissioner sees advocacy at work in Bangladesh

Stories | July 22, 2022

While everyone plays their role in making the world a better place, incredible things can also be achieved through teamwork. Advocacy is a powerful tool for uniting communities and raising awareness.

During the Australian High Commission’s recent visit to our project team in Bangladesh, they heard about this firsthand.

The Local Education Office shared what they’d learned from the training our project team supported – training that led to significant changes in the region.

The Local Education Office has taken the initiative to provide the same training to other teachers in schools throughout the region. In addition, it has begun discussions about new ways to fund disability-focused initiatives.

More and more students with disabilities are enrolled and engaging with these schools daily! 

Step by step, in partnership with local communities and local governments, the world can become a more inclusive place for people with disabilities, just like what happened in these schools.

CBM acknowledges the support of the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) for this project.
