Background:

With the assistance of Action Aid Bangladesh, YPSA conducted a house hold survey (1998) depicts that around 17.72 % person with disabilities lives in the Sitakund.  From 1999 YPSA started to operate different community based development programs.  In that time observed that People with disabilities are deprived in the society and they did not claim their rights.

Having more findings and community needs from 2001 thematically the issue of disability had been identified and DISC Program started it journey. As Sitakund Upazilla is a place with people with higher rate disability, it was decided to include this vulnerable segment of people with all development initiatives.
