Welcome Message

Society for the Welfare of the Intellectually Disabled, Bangladesh (SWID Bangladesh) is pleased to host the 23rd Conference of Asian Federation on Intellectual Disabilities (AFID) 2017. I am grateful to the honorable members of the Executive Board for electing me as the president of AFID for the period of 2015-2017 and for granting me the responsibility of holding the 23rd Conference of AFID in Bangladesh.

I welcome all my friends at AFID with greetings from SWID Bangladesh. I am hoping for kind cooperation from all the concerned member countries in order to successfully complete the conference. I look forward to active participation from all members/representatives/resource persons working across various countries for the welfare and rehabilitation of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities (PWID). This is a platform for all of us to come together and exchange our ideas, thoughts and future plan for implementation and demonstrate our commitment through our collaboration.

SWID Bangladesh is the pioneer and nationally recognized organization in Bangladesh in the field of intellectual disability and has supported the movement to protect equal rights and opportunities, rehabilitation with employment, social security and uphold dignity of the people whom we work with. We have become a large association in the Asia region, promoting 135 special schools for the intellectually disabled & autistic children.
