Description

Volunteer NEPAL Experience Disabled Child and Special Needs Volunteering Work

As a volunteer, you will help disabled children by learning, dancing, playing games and helping their caretakers with daily tasks and chores. Do you want to put a smile on these children’s faces? Then this will be an incredible experience for you.

The situation of People with Disabilities in Nepal

Most disabled individuals in Nepal are ignored and neglected; often locked out of sight in dark rooms. This is because their family members feel ashamed at having lost prestige and respect in the community through the person's disability. Often these children live a life where they feel no love, care or self-worth. Some are even reduced to begging on the streets. Volunteer in Nepal with Volunteer World Nepal and give these people the support they deserve.

What does a volunteer in a Disabled home or centre do?

Volunteers spend up to 6 hours a day at the centre, assisting caregivers in preparing and running activities for the students. For those who are able to learn, the volunteers can teach the children basic English. Volunteers can also help to plan outings in the local area and design creative learning sessions. Depending on the volunteer’s level of experience you may provide more education on care methods to the Nepali staff. Or you can do some vocational training and set up income-generating programs. You can also introduce the use of ICT technology in the student’s learning and play.

Do I need any specific skills or qualifications for this placement?

If volunteers have had previous experience with disabled children then they may enjoy this placement more. However, previous experience is not a requirement. When choosing to work at the disabled centre you must be patient, friendly and approachable. This work can be very challenging because of all the different learning and physical difficulties encountered. But the staff at the centre are always on hand to help guide you.

Where in Nepal can I volunteer in a Center for Children with Disabilities?

The centres for disabled children are located in different areas in Kathmandu. We also partner with a school for children with autism which is located in Pokhara. There is also a centre for children with disabilities just outside of Kathmandu in the countryside.
