Education

From 2011, Bangladesh Computer Council conducts ICT training for capacity development of the persons with disabilities. ICT training activities for persons with disabilities are conducting through seven regional offices (Rajshahi, Chittagong, Khulna, Barisal, Faridpur, Sylhet and Rangpur) including head office Dhaka. About 2800 persons of disabilities receive the training from BCC without fee. Other allowances like training materials (Book, Pen, and notebook), transport, and accommodation also provided for the trainees.
This training activity has been drawing their attention of persons with disabilities to learn computer and day by day the number of trainees are increasing. Beside ICT training BCC is planning job related training and skill development activities for them. Trained person will be sent to companies of their preference and BCC will fund for their 3 months internship. That will help the disable persons to get a suitable job.
