Indo-Bangladesh bonhomie: Children from Proyash visit Kolkata


Indo-Bangladesh bonhomie: Children from Proyash visit Kolkata

In order to boost ties with the neighbouring country, the Indian Army has invited a couple of Bangladeshi children with special needs to stay in West Bengal's Kolkata for four long days.

As part of the initiative, five children with special needs along with their educators from 'Proyash' had flown to Kolkata on February 10. The team was led by Colonel Mohammed Shahidul Alam of the Bangladesh Army.

“Proyash” is a specialized organization that values the holistic development of all children with special educational needs through multidimensional programs. Proyash is functioning under the patronage of the Bangladesh Army since July 2006.

On 11 February, the delegation visited ASHA School Kolkata where Veena Naravane, Regional President AWWA Eastern Command interacted with the delegation and presented its members with mementoes and gifts.

“ASHA”, a School for differently abled children came into existence on July 1, 1991 with the aim of providing a combined curriculum of education and therapy as well as counselling and rehabilitation. Since, the time of its inception, the School has progressed steadily towards its goals.

The aim of the School is to ensure overall development of differently abled children of Defence Forces personnel (Combatants and Civilians) with a view to make them self-dependent and contributing members of society. Eastern Command, based at Kolkata, runs the School under the patronage of Regional President AWWA and has been doing a commendable job in this field.

The team from Bangladesh visited the Indian Institute of Cerebral Palsy (IICP), Amrit Somani Memorial Centre (ASMC) and places of tourist interest like the Zoological Garden, the Victoria Memorial and the Quest Mall. (ANI)
