India-Bangladesh exchange program for disabled kids to start
Relations between India and Bangladesh are getting an extra boost, this time by disabled children. The army schools of India and Bangladesh have joined hands for a ‘bilateral exchange program’. This program will help students from both countries to explore more things about the other country.
Initially, five students from Asha School in Kolkata had gone to Proyash School in Bangladesh from 10-14 February. Later students from Proyash visited Kolkata from 15-17 February. The Asha School was started in the year 1992 by the Eastern Command Army Wives Welfare Association (EC AWWA) for disabled kids of army officers and civilians. Located at the Command Hospital Eastern Command (CHEC) Complex Alipore in Kolkata, the school offers education, rehabilitation and required care to students who are disabled.
The Proyash School in Bangladesh was started off in the year 2006 and is funded mainly by army officers. The exchange programme between these two schools is praiseworthy and opens doors for children from countries.
