We would like to extend a Great thank you for your continued support from our Children with Disabilities and for the recurring donations to our project. We became active in the Globalgiving page for the last 9 months and we got at least one donation for each month! It was possible just because of you. This made us “Leader” status upgraded from “Partner” status among the Globalgiving partners.

These are the benefits for the Leader Organization:

  • Eligible to be recommended to a corporate partner, featured in GlobalGiving social media, and highlighted in donor communications;
  • Eligible for special trainings, matching campaigns, and other opportunities just for Leaders.
  • Permanent access to GlobalGiving's online fundraising and donor management tools;
  • Free monthly training covering topics such as financial management for non-profits, social media for non-profits, reporting on your progress, and more;
  • Inclusion on GlobalGiving's employee giving programs with corporate partners;
  • Access to GlobalGiving's site-wide matching campaigns;
  • Eligibility to receive gift card redemptions from donors.
  • Ability to post volunteer opportunities on the GlobalGiving site and its volunteer partner sites

Now our aim is to become a “Superstar” partner of Globalgiving so that we can get donations from the big corporate houses of US. For that we need to be active for at least next three months and to raise more than US $ 24000. Hope we shall achieve this goal also.

Superstar Organization benefits:

  • Most likely to be recommended to a corporate partner, featured in GlobalGiving social media, and in donor communications;
  • Eligibility for donor interaction and events;
  • Eligible for future trainings, matching campaigns, and other opportunities special for Superstars.

As we promised help for 12 children for a year, this time also we were able to provide help for the 12 Children with Disabilities as before. We could support for these children in the following sector for the 3 months time, they are

  • Lunch for 3 children
  • Service/education, transportation for 5 children
  • Medicine distribution for 4 children

Besides this,

  • We hired a new Physiotherapist this time and she will be working with us under this project for at least one year with possible extension. With this new physiotherapist, Children with Disabilities are getting quality therapy daily from a qualified physiotherapist. Before they are getting twice a week from physiotherapist.

Here are some words from the Physiotherapist:

“It is my great pleasure to be a part of the Globalgiving project which has such a wide range of networks all around the world. It will help to upgrade my career a step up. Hope I can bring a result oriented change to these children.”

  • This time we organized one day picnic out door program for the children. They enjoyed a lot. All together 140 people participated the program including the parents and their other offspring of the children, staff, members and some children from the field program. One of the mothers of the severly disable children said “I can not go out from my apartment because of my disable children, this program helped me to go out from my place”.
  • Also, one student from the centre and one teacher sent for bakery training for 5 days. The main motto of the training is to furnish them with skills and hence helping them to lead their life independently and to make active them in economic activities.
  • One day training on bookey making has been conducted in Patan CBR Organization in which 5 students from the centre participated and the product has been displayed in the public and kept on sell.
  • Assistive devices have been made and distributed to the needy children with disabilities. Specially this time two splints have been made and distributed.

Thanking you for your great support for our project and to our Organization. Hope we will achieve the “Superstar” partner status soon.

We would like to extend our great thank you to all the donors from Children with Disabilities of Patan CBR Organization and Patan CBR itself for your continued support and also thanks to the new donors.

Now, we are in the “Partner” status among the projects of Global Giving and would like to upgrade to “Superstar” status via “Leader” status. For this, we need at least one donation each month for nine months. Till now we have continuous donation for the last six months. Now we need donation for at least 3 months. Hope we will achieve this status and then we will be eligible to get donations from the big corporate houses of US.

This time I’m reporting about our activities and the developments in our centre from the period of December 24, 2013 to March 20, 2014.

This time we are able to provide help for the 12 Children with Disabilities as before. We could support for these children in the following sector for this 3 months time, they are

  • Lunch for 3 children
  • Service/education, transportation for 5 children
  • Medicine distribution for 4 children

This time we organized the zoo visit program in conjunction with Hands for Care. Children with their parents enjoyed a lot during the program.

Parents, stakeholders and others are extremely happy to see the survival of the office and program even in this difficult time. I would like to share some of the words by our concerned people.

Bekha, a parent of a son with multiple disabilities expressed the view as “I was worried as I heared the news that Patan CBR has lost the support from the major donor. As my son has multiple disabilities and he can do nothing, I need to continue his rehabilitation anyway so that I could continue my income generation smoothly. I have owned a Mobike workshop and it was not possible if Patan CBR did not get the support from the well wishers through Global Giving. During the night we don’t sleep because my son doesn’t sleep and crying almost all the times and we have to look after. Only free time I have is the day time in which I can leave my son in Patan CBR rehabilitation centre”.

An international volunteer from Israel who had provided her service some years back and donated for the project visited this year said “Things are changing here and the day care centre is very neat clean and bigger in size, physiotherapy room is also expanded”. Similarly, the volunteers from Japan, Austria who have supported this project also visited this year and expressed their happiness.

We are very much excited with your donation that we can at least continue our support to the needy children of our society for one year.

We are successful in getting our organization as a permanent partner and we got a permanent spot on Global giving just because of your great support. You have donated $7,285 in a single month of September, it’s amazing and now it’s our duty to make assure that this amount is spent for the betterment of the children in need. We will be sending regular report of our activities until our project is fully funded.

Thank you from Children with Disabilities of PCBR

Patan CBR Organization has been working in the field of disability sector for the last 17 years. CBR program had been launched in 1995 as a Lady Jaycees program and in 1999 it has been established as a separate identity as an organization. The major target group is Children with Disabilities (CWDs). Nowadays, it is serving Youth with disabilities (YWDs) also.  Till now, 1856 Children/Youth With Disability (C/YWD) have been served consisting of 41 different districts of Nepal. Our working area has expanded to the Nuwakot District, Kathmandu and 32 Villages Development Committes of Lalitpur District and Lalitpur municipality as well. 

Patan CBR has been providing services in two sectors. One is centre based program and another is field based program.

Under the center based program:

Some of the services provided by our organization are day care facility, education, medicine distribution, counseling, assistive device distribution, physiotherapy, scholarship. Till now we are providing day care and education services to 55 C/YWDs.

Vocational service is one of the praiseworthy services of the organization. We are providing training to those C/YWDs, who are capable of doing work. These training includes envelop, candle making, incense, pop corn, cumin powder making, coriander powder  making etc. We hope these types of skill development training helps them in raising quality of their life to some extent.

Physiotherapy service and counseling centre is another speciality of our organization. Providing these services with modern equipments to C/YWDs of CBR and out patients are really helping the CWDs freely and needy people of community with very low price.

We have been providing the school education program for CWDs since a long ago and we are dedicated to sending the CWDs in the mainstream education school after training them about the school environment for some years.

Patan CBR has been the destination of international volunteers since a long ago. The numbers of international volunteers per year reached to a maximum of 60.

Under the field based program:

Patan CBR has been working not only in the centre but also in the outside field. Under the field program home visit, training, orientation, advocacy, awareness, mass rally, medicine distribution, technical assistance to the Village Disability Rehabilitation Committee (VDRC) etc.

There is a growing demand of these types of programs from the outside community also. In this connection, we are planning to expand our services in Jhapa district if we can manage resource for it. 

But all these services provided by Patan CBR organization are in stake now. Our major donor Save the Children Nepal Norway phased out its CBR project from 2010 onwards. SCN was bearing 63% of total expenditure including program during its support. Now we definitely need help from our well-wishers, donors to continue our support to the neediest and marginalized people of the community.

The field program which is one of the needy programs identified from the survey is now forced to cut off to some extent. If this program is not started immediately, the neediest and the marginalized group of community will be deprived from the basic rights like right to education, right to health, etc. and they will be forced to live idle in their home. If we get support in this regard, quality of their life will be raised to some extent and we hope it will be a big support for them.

With your support, for this project, we are very much excited that we can continue our services to the poor, needy and marginalized  community group. Thank you very much for your great support to continue at least our centre based rehabilitation program for these Children with Disabilities. 

Greatr thank you once again from my personal side , from our organization and from our children. Hope your help will continue  for the days to come.

Thank you from children with severe disability
