Volunteer Society Nepal has established a center for physically and intellectually disabled children. The Center for Children with Disabilities is located in Kathmandu and has 20 children at present. These children have intellectual and developmental disabilities. They were previously ignored and neglected and have now been receiving special education and physiotherapy services. Furthermore they also receive nutritious food such as fresh vegetables, fruits, and milk on a daily basis.

Disabled in Nepal

Disabled individuals in Nepal are commonly ignored, neglected, and forced to live in dark rooms. Because their family members feel shame at having lost prestige in the community because of them. As a result, many are dying in the same room or bed where they were born. In Nepal, disabilities are seen as a form of punishment given by the gods. Having a disabled family member affects the reputation and social relations of the whole family. The disabled persons are denied basic human rights such as education, health care, employment etc. Persons with disabilities in Nepal live in a state of neglect and humiliation.

  • Typically assist caregivers, and provide more education on care methods where necessary.
