Summary

In November 2017 the Nepal Spinal Cord Injury Sports Association (NSCISA) are aiming to organise the country's first international wheelchair basketball tournament. Teams from Nepal will compete with others from India and Bangladesh. This will boost the competitors' confidence, while raising awareness that disability doesn't mean the end of potential. Some local funding is available, but things are still tough after the earthquake. So NDV is raising money to help contribute to the total costs.

Challenge

In Nepal, like elsewhere, people may be born with physical disability, while some may acquire it in later life due to various causes. Impairments with limbs, joints and bones, or in motor functions, limit the physical function of their bodies, but this doesn't mean they can't take part in life. Sadly in less developed countries like Nepal, the rights and potential of the physically disabled aren't well recognised. This can only be changed by example.

Solution

Donations to this project will help highlight the strong and positive contributions that disabled people can make to society, by showing their ability in sport. This will help to change mindsets towards people with disability. At the same time 120 disabled people will be enabled and motivated to stay active, healthy and confident. The total cost of the tournament is over $40,000 but NDV is aiming to partner with NSCISA and provide a $5,000 contribution.

Long-Term Impact

This project will bring a smile to people with disabilities, by reminding them that they can live independent and purposeful lives. It will also boost their longer-term confidence and self-esteem by showing them they can still contribute through the medium of sports. Similarly the event will give a strong message to society about the capacity, capability and ability of people with disabilities.
