Executive Summary :
Bangladesh, being the most densely populated and one of the poorest countries in the world, the disables stand no chance of opportunity in life, especially if the person is poor and female. Out of 170 million, approximately 14% populations are disabled. Bangladesh government has sets of rules and welfare systems to provide assistance but it does not sufficient for this group. DPUP, DRISTI PROTIBONDHI Unnayan Parishad a NGO, free from any political influences and benefits, was founded with a view to bring an end of suffering of this group, give them status and create a society where everyone will be respected. We believe everyone has a duty as a human, a duty within self and a duty towards others, keeping this sincere and honest approach; we concentrate our main activities to improve the Socio Economic status for the most disadvantage group (poor destitute population) and people  with disability. We started as a small organization but our honest and sincere efforts of our Executives, stuffs and volunteers are   enabling us to help more and more disadvantage groups every day and grow bigger. Currently, the activities of the organization are concentrating in the 12 Districts of Bangladesh. In the meantime, DPUP has successfully completed over 17 years of its development interventions in the field of rehabilitation and education of the persons with disability. During the period of 16 years the organization had to confront various odd situations and obstacles in the pursuits of its activities.
