Therap and SWID Bangladesh jointly organized a workshop in Rangpur, Bangladesh on June 11, 2017 in RCCI auditorium, Rangpur. As Rangpur is one of the eight divisions of Bangladesh and the place of the workshop was centered in the middle of Rangpur city so attendance from special schools and organizations was higher. Around 200 people from SWID affiliated special schools and organizations attended the workshop. Most of the attendees were teachers, special educators and head teachers of the schools.
Prattay Iqbal, International Business Development Executive, Therap talked about Therap and introduced Therap to the attendees. The attendees then got to see some of Therap’s support materials such as user guides and training videos.
