Day Care

Since 2000, Patan CBR has been operating a day-care centre for children with multiple disabilities, in Shankhamul, Lalitpur. In 2002, this centre was extended to provide a unit for specialist education for children with educational disabilities.

Disability awareness

In a country where disability was, until recently, hidden away, one of Patan CBR’s main objectives is to increase awareness at all levels, from families to central government. Patan CBR produces a range of material – brochures, leaflets, training material – and works actively to increase awareness through workshops, seminars and individual contact.

As a result of improved awareness at family and community level, there is less stigma attached to disability and more children are reported to the organisation and receiving support.

Families and children increasingly see school attendance as a realistic option and feel motivated to work harder to increase functional capacities. Once in school, the incentives multiply. Parents make extraordinary commitments such as carrying their children to school each day, helping with daily life skills and maintaining a rigorous schedule of therapy, often on top of work and other demands.

Increasingly, government and non-government organizations are incorporating disability issues in their agendas.

Disability prevention

It is estimated that around 40% of disability in the region is due to disease and accidents, both of which are largely preventable. Improvements such as a clean environment, a balanced diet and safer roads could have a large impact.

Patan CBR provides education on disability prevention at all levels from school upwards.

A large part of this effort is aimed at improving girls’ understanding of the needs of both mothers and their children during pregnancy and after birth.

Community Physiotherapy Clinic

This program has been started in 2010 January after the phase out of the SCNN. Rotary International, Rotary club of Newberg, Germany, district 1840 provided the equipments of the clinic in assistance with Rotary Club of Patan west district 3292. During day time we provide the physiotherapy services to the children of the centre. In order to sustain it we are accepting the community patients also.Since we are not for profit making organization, we charge very nominal amount to the community out patients. We have two professional and highly qualified Physiotherapists.

Skill Development Program

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 making, candle making, incense, pop corn, cumin powder making, coriander powder making etc. We hope these types of skill development training help them in raising quality of their life to some extent.

School Education Program

Patan CBR provides the school education to those who are capable to learn something. Under this program 30 CWDs are getting education. We use visual communication rather than lecture method to make understand them.

Other Programs

Besides these we are providing disability and physiotherapy orientation programs to the community people. Similarly, home visits, advocacy, mass awareness, identity cards for the PWDs, medicine distribution are our regular programs.
