Rehabilitate 1000 Persons W. Disabilities in Nepal


People with Disabilities living in remote Himalayan districts of Nepal have little or no access to healthcare, physiotherapy or assistive devices, such as leg braces or walking frames. As people have to walk for days to reach the nearest health facility, disability adds further challenges. This project targets those 1000 PWDs who are in compelling need of basic health, physiotherapy and assistive services close to their homes, contributing to improve their social, mental and physical health.

In remote communities, people have negative perceptions of People living with disabilities. Majorities come from low economic status and are unaware of their basic rights and available allowances/facilities from government. Health facilities are scarce with limited health professionals. Accessing these facilities is a challenge due to the lack of proper roadways and lack of disability-friendly vehicles on available roads. Disasters like COVID-19, yearly flood and landslides worsen the situation.


With funding, PHASE will ensure that qualified physiotherapists will visit disabled people in their homes and assess their health and need for assistance. Short-term physical therapists and assistive devices will be provided to improve quality of life. Disabled people and their families will be educated on their service options and how to best help their needs. Awareness of people living with disabilities will spread through community engagement activities to create a more inclusive society.

Long-Term Impact

With this initiative, the most vulnerable group in Nepals remote and deprived communities will have access to basic physiotherapy, primary health care services, and assistive devices. They will be trained, given resources, and provided with resources that will have a huge positive impact on their health, and on their whole family's quality of life. Through advocacy and support, people with disabilities will be able to access the physical help and support they need for full and enjoyable life.
