About The EPD Program
USAID's three-year Expanding Participation of Persons with Disability (EPD) program is designed to empower Bangladeshi DPOs to activate the DRPA district committees, thereby providing a vital new opportunity for citizens with disabilities to access justice. Once trained and mobilized, DPOs working in concert with local stakeholders will actively engage the DRPA district committees to ensure their accountability and responsiveness to persons with disabilities. In the long run, this program will empower DPOs to become democratic change agents in their local communities.
Produce high-quality, action-oriented resources on the DRPA for diverse stakeholders. Some of the resources will be published in braille copies, electronically available audio and Bangla sign language versions to make it accessible to persons with certain type of disabilities
