HI has operated in Bangladesh since 1997, implementing programs aimed at improving access to services for people with disabilities and other women, men, boys, and girls that are discriminated against. By working with local partners and through direct implementation both in host communities and in camps, HI’s programs include the provision of health and rehabilitation services, inclusive education and livelihoods, promoting the rights of people with disabilities by strengthening protective mechanisms, and inclusion mainstreaming.  

In Cox’s Bazaar, HI has been working in registered camps and host communities since 2007 and has scaled up its interventions in response to the influx of Rohingya refugees in August 2017. HI currently operates eleven mobile units that provide rehabilitation, MHPSS, nursing care and protection support in eleven camps in Ukiya and Teknaf, manages a logistics platform that provides storage and transport support to various humanitarian partners, as well as reaches the most vulnerable families with complementary food, NFI, and shelter kit distribution.

A project on Inclusive Education is ongoing in the camps and host communities. It aims to promote the right of all the children to have access to education. To strengthen inclusive education HI applies a twin track approach. On one side, HI’s community volunteers work with children with disabilities and their families to engage their interest in education and develop education plans. At the same time, HI Inclusion Officers also work with the teachers from the schools supported to train them on inclusive education and help them develop inclusive lesson plans. Strategies for including children with various disabilities will be developed. To improve accessibility, HI’s team of experts also work to identify physical changes to the schools such as ramps and accessible toilets which will encourage children with disabilities to attend.
