With this Vision
Sporsho for the first time in 2011 launched a book stall for the visually impaired in the largest extravaganza of books in the country, the “Ekushe Boi Mela”. From 2008 till February 2022, Sporsho has published 100 books in Braille version written by eminent authors and including variety of subject matter (some major titles can be provided if required).
The books are placed in the stall for all to read and in addition are distributed free to those who atteneds the boi mela and the major special schools of the country.From 2016 Sporsho decided to include all people with disability (PWD) to make her initiative more inclusive.
Sporsho plans to include activities beyond Ekushe Boi Mela to make her initiative available to all in the form of ‘knowledge center’, open throughout the year. As a part of this pursuit, Sporsho has celebrated her tenth year in a day long program in association with Bangla Academy including various activities that included both PWDs as well as able people of all walks of life from across Bangladesh.
Sporsho planned to bring both physically able and physically challenged people under the same roof. As part of this initiative for PWD, Sporsho has been working with Center for the Rehabilitation of the Paralyzed (CRP) since 2016. As part of this, Sporsho has arranged Book Fair in CRP premises for all and has distributed wheel chair. In addition, Sporsho has also organized a wheelchair basketball event for the especially abled.
