Prashanta does not go to school but supports his family by begging in the street. Here CSID Director Rabiul talks to Prashanta trying to explain to him why school is important. Disabled children can make 5-600 taka ( £5-6) / day which is more than a good rickshaw driver makes. Prashanta's brother goes to school but because Prashanta is disabled he is sent out to earn money rather than get an education. This is very common and CSID tries to convince parents of disabled children that in the long term it is better value for money if their children gets an education. Some times CSID give the families support to raise their income so that the children will stay in school.Dhaka, Bangladesh.
