Special Needs and ED in Nepal

Program Category:

Special Needs and Inclusion

Most disabled individuals in Nepal are ignored and neglected, often locked out of sight in dark rooms because their family members feel ashamed at having lost prestige and respect in the community through the persons' disability. Often, these children go through life without receiving any love, care or self-worth. Some are reduced to beg on the streets

This program is designed for

OT Students PT Students Everyone with motivation

Volunteer Responsibilities

When you Volunteer with special needs you provide support for 5-6 hours a day at the center, assisting caregivers in preparing and running activities for the students. For those who can learn, the volunteers can teach the children basic English. Volunteers can also help to plan outings in the local area and design creative learning sessions. Depending on the volunteer’s level of experience you may provide more education on care methods to the Nepali staff. Or you can do some vocational training and set up income-generating programs. You can also introduce the use of ICT technology in the student’s learning and play.
