Thank you for your wonderful dance! At KAF festiva

Greetings from all the Children of Patan CBR and also from Patan CBR Organization. Hope you all are fine and Happy Christmas to all of you.

First of all thank you once again for your donation to Patan CBR Organization. It was really a good support for us. Specially, in such a situation when our previous donor phased out their support to our organization. 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.

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. 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 September 2013 to December 2013.

With your support our children got opportunity for the outdoor activities like

  • Job fair exhibition for Persons with Disabilities.

All together 18 students from Patan CBR Organization from skill development unit and the School unit got opportunity to take participate in Job fair program in World Trade Centre, Tripureshwor, Kathmandu organized by National Federation for Disabled (NFDN). This greatly helped in exposing our student with disabilities to the outer community also.

  • Participation in Bochhia game and Running

4 Children with Disabilities (CwDs) from the centre program of Patan CBR got opportunity to participate in the special game called Bochhia (a game specially designed to play for people with Cerebral Palsy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boccia). Also, Students from CBR got opportunity to participate in running game in the same program.

  • Talent show in Kathmandu University School of Management Festival (KAF), International Disable Day program and AGM of Patan CBR Organization

Five students performed their dance in KAF program in Gwarko, Lalitpur. It was wonderful opportunity for them to show the performance. It changed the perception of the young students from the university towards these types of children that they also can do something, if given a chance to them. 5 students performed a dance in the inauguration ceremony of the International Disable Day program by National Federation for the Disabled (NFDN) and in 13th AGM of Patan CBR, which elected the 11 member executive body.

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
