Activity Report from 12 June 2014 to 04 September 2014

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude for all the donors for donating our project. We became “Leader” partner now and we were active in Globalgiving from September 2013 till now. Not only this, our projects are now eligible to receive donations not only from Globalgiving but also from the corporate sectors of US like Hilton Honors and Your Cause. Our project reports are visible in the employee giving portals of these organizations. It all have been possible just because of well-wishers like you. It is my great pleasure to let you know that we became eligible for Microsoft Youth Spark Project. That means, there is increased chance of getting advantage from the Microsoft and possible funding opportunity.

Now our aim is to be a “Superstar” partner of Globalgiving for this we need to raise $25000 or more. Hope we shall achieve this status also.

Here are the benefits of being superstar organization:

  • 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.

Great thanks from the side of Patan CBR Organization and from the children with intellectual disabilities, the most vulnerable Children with Disabilities. Hope for your continuing support in the near future also.

Our physiotherapist is happy to be a part of the Globalgiving and has to say this : “ As a physiotherapist, I feel very happy to be a part of the Globalgiving Project. After I have been appointed to this post, everyday I am providing physiotherapy to 6 Children with different types of physical and mental disabilities. I am quite happy to continue the physiotherapy work which once was in stake due to the lack of resources. Thank you everyone for your valuable support to Patan CBR Organization.”

This time we were able to support for the 12 CWDs. The support continued in the sectors like, Lunch for 3 children, Service/education, transportation for 5 children, medicine for 4 children.

  • Two additional children with disabilities have been benefitted in medicine sector and education sector.
  • 4 Children with Disabilities from the centre participated in the out door sports program organized by Mother’s Society of Intellectual Disabilities. Children enjoyed a lot. Sports activities like running, throwing soft balls are the events of the program.
  • As the autistic students are very hyper in behavior, and the educational materials have been torn/ thrown by these types of intellectual disability students, the walls of the autism room has been painted with various fruits, animals, Nepali letters, English letters etc.
  • With your support our new physiotherapist is continuing her work. Children with Disabilities are getting regular physiotherapy on daily basis.
  • Altogether 4 children, 4 parents got training on bookey making in collaboration with Lalitpur Sub-metropolitan City. Their products have been displayed in closing program amidst a function.

Classroom management

  • This time with your help, we were able to manage class rooms with 2 ceiling fans and 4 stand fans along with educational materials. This summer has been good for the children. The classroom walls have been painted in cooperation with international volunteers. With this, new management of the class of the student with disabilities now have good environment to learn.

Also, The School Coordinator from Patan CBR has to say about the project that “ there is improvement in Daily Living Activities of the Children, as a result the family and the stakeholders are also benefitted. These types of services should be continued because these types of children need long term support not short term. Their developments can be seen only after the long time, it can not be compared with the normal children. I and all the staff felt that because of this project, children, and family are regularly getting different rehabilitation facilities. We thank all the donors. Hope to continue the support in the near future also.”

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.

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.

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.
