Centre for Children with Special Needs (CCSN) is a project of the A project of the Rotary club of Banani Dhaka, Bangladesh.

OBJECTIVES OF CCSN

WHAT WE DO

The organization of services for these children depend on both community based and institutional approaches to rehabilitation. Our approach is community based rehabilitation.

The main work is to take the service for these children to their doorsteps so that mothers can avail it more easily. They can get physiotherapy, consultation, medical advice & training within an accessible distance. We need a pediatrician, a physiotherapist, a health assistant and some logistic support. We already know the place and are familiar with some people of the village. We have about 40 disabled children enlisted. We have a pediatrician and a physiotherapist.
