Challenge

Disability is multidimensional complex and challenging development issue for Nepal because it is directly link to poverty. Nepal Population census 2011 mentions 513,321 persons with disabilities and 96,000 are visually impaired. These children are twofold marginalized due to limited mobility that excludes them from many opportunities for education and getting employment in future. The project aims to provide education materials to 50 such children for increasing access to education and mobility.

Solution

Long-Term Impact

Disability is differently able hence, if we can support the visually impaired destitute children they will inspire and bring change in attitude. Access to education gain self-confidence and create positive impact in the society. Investment in visually impaired basic materials for needy children is great opportunity to be blessed as these children can further contribute and live comfort life.
