Thank you all for your wonderful support to our project. Till now we got $14,404.98 donations from 131 donors like you. The happy news is that we have one monthly donor. It helped to maintain our project to “Superstar” level. Great THANK YOU all.

This time we are reporting about the outing program for the children.

“In life everyone is in the search of happiness”. The word comprises with the meaning that fills a person with good feelings, a content of satisfaction. The definition of happiness differs from person to person. Everyone wants to be happy in life for which they perform various things. People also take break from their daily monotonous activities and do something different which freshens up both their mind and body.

With the same purpose an outing was planned on February 2017 for the students with disabilities to divert them from their daily activities. The aim behind it was a healthy mind and body. The day out was planned at the UN Park which is near the centre i.e. 15 minutes’ walk. The students were taken by foot and some of the students were taken by wheel chairs. A group of trainees, foreign volunteers and staff members facilitated and guided the students for the whole day.Couples of activities were planned for the students including games, recreational activities and a walk around the Park.

The arrangements were made beforehand and the students took some rest after reaching the place. Then the volunteers and the trainees involved the students in various games by dividing them into favorable groups which was supervised by the staff members and the teachers. Games included hiding the handkerchief, catching the odd one out, getting the sweets down, skipping, swing, and slide. The students had their lunch after all the games which was a retreat by the trainees and volunteers of the centre. After the lunch there was a recreational activity in which the students sang their favorite songs and danced to their heart out. Finally the students were taken for a short walk around the park and let them spent some time for the peace of the mind.

Students were observed having fun playing and spending time with their friends and facilitators. As a whole everything went according to the plan and the laid purpose was achieved. The outing was a success and it is ensured that a mutual learning was obtained because of which everyone returned homes with good memories.

The program was joined by two volunteers from Germany and Austria. One volunteer from Germany expressed that “I did not believe that there is existence of such a good facility for Children with Disabilities in Nepal. CBR is doing really a good job for them”.

Lastly there is a saying that, “we must find happiness where we are”. And this is what we have taught our students in our centre. We are also delighted that we are able to make them find happiness where they are.

Altogether, 10 dance items were performed amidst a huge mass out of which 2 were from the children of Patan CBR Organization. The attraction of the program was the dance by the parents of CwDs. The president of Patan CBR chaired the program. During the same program, Leo club members present in the program raised NRs. 2309 for the children of Patan CBR Organization.

Physiotherapy Activities

It is our immense pleasure to let you know that we were successful in making sponsored the physiotherapist from one profit making organization. Under the guidance of the physiotherapist a number of international physiotherapist and the students are getting opportunity to serve with the children in need. Nowadays, there are altogether 15 children who need physiotherapy. As we have only one physiotherapist, they are getting physiotherapy services three times a week as per the structure of physiotherapy unit.

Every Sunday home visits have been scheduled for those who are not able to come to the CBR school because of their problem.

The following treatments have been used for the children

  • Relaxation
  • Muscle stretching
  • Muscle strengthening training
  • Core muscle strengthening
  • Balance exercise
  • Coordination exercise

As international volunteers working with the physiotherapy unit are increasing, we are revising our working modality. Every Thursday, we are carrying presentation of one children of the centre to the newcomer international volunteers. This gave us a great feedback from the volunteers and becoming an increasing platform of sharing knowledge from around the world.

Our therapist Sami has to say this regarding her work “I feel proud to work in this Patan CBR therapy unit as I get opportunity to share and update my knowledge with the therapists from around the world and also to gain knowledge from them, it is possible only with the help of the  donors like you.”

It is our great pleasure that this time we are reporting you about the participation by our children to an important event on 20th November, 2016. Yes, it was Child Rights Day (CRC day). Every year this day is celebrated with great enthusiasm because the rights of children with disabilities are not even mentioned in many sectors and also the violence against the Children with Disabilities (CwDs). This time children from Patan CBR participated in the CRC day organized by Lalitpur Sub-Metropolitan City (LSMC), a local government body, at its own office premises among 300 children including some guests. The chief guest of the program was the Chief and Executive Officer from the same office. The program was completely for the children and by the children. There was a dance performance from the three children of Patan CBR organization in a popular song. It created a sensation among the children when they performed a dance. Many surprised that these types of intellectually disabled children can also perform dance. Some children even expressed that there exists these types of CwDs in the society.

Soon after finishing the performance various persons expressed their view in their address to the mass. The chief of the Social welfare department, LSMC expressed his view “if given a chance to the children with these types of intellectual disabilities, they can also do the same thing that the normal children do” he also expressed that the work done by Patan CBR is great and difficult and said others to help for the genuine cause. “We will help continuously to Patan CBR during the days to come as we did during the past” he said.

CBR dance teacher, who has been teaching dance to these children expressed that “it is really a difficult task to teach these types of Intellectual Disable Children. They forget everything they have been taught a day before. I have been teaching this item of dance for them for the last 12 months twice a week still they have a lot to do.

Mother of one child who performed the dance expressed that “I felt proud to my daughter to see she is dancing with such a huge mass. I filmed the dance from the beginning to the last. I thank Patan CBR for this training so that my daughter could perform in the mass”

Also, this time 3 groups from medical students of  LA Trobe University, Australia visited our centre and took the in-depth knowledge about our work. Altogether  14 students alongwith supervisor professor observed our program
