University of Chittagong | Chattogram, Bangladesh | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 1
" Inclusion of disabled students in higher studies always has been a challenge. Only a small percentage of disabled students can prolong their journey till higher study. Also, initiatives for their skill development for pursuing a career path are also inadequate in Bangladesh. This instigated me intensely to work for the betterment of disable students in my campus. Considering that, As UN academic impact and MCN program are persistently working together to facilitate young enthusiasts in their scenario-changing goals, I believe this remarkable learning support will enable me to execute my visions. A diverse insights from fellows across world will give me the avenue to learn in a greater extent and also implement those experiences in my project. "
