Research and Studies

ADRAD has been engaged in various Research and studies concerning disability related issue in coordination with various stakeholders and agendas such as Human Rights situation of persons with disabilities, employment prospects, education of children with disabilities, disability management, importance of social communication events, relevancy, adequacy and sustainability of scholarship provisions, effectiveness of self-help groups of Persons with disabilities in community development, inclusion of persons with disabilities in the NTFP based enterprises. As a result of these activities, local people are much more aware of the causes of disabilities, and they have started to treat Persons with disabilities respectfully and equally. Persons with disabilities are now unified, they have developed self-esteem, and they have organised pressure groups to fight for their rights. The stigma and discrimination previously shown towards persons with disabilities is improving gradually.
