Description

Special Needs

Most disabled individuals in Nepal are ignored and neglected; often locked out of sight. The situation for deaf people is little better. Volunteer in Nepal with Volunteer Society Nepal and give these people the support they deserve.

Disabled people in Nepal are often forced to live in dark rooms because their family members feel ashamed and angry at having lost prestige and respect in the community through their relative’s disability. Often these individuals live a life where they feel no love, care or self worth and with no financial support, not providing special needs are often reduced to begging on the streets.

Meanwhile 24.6% of the population in Nepal is deaf or hearing impaired, and most live in rural areas without access to education or Sign Language training. It is therefore very difficult for deaf students to get a proper education. Even at deaf schools, there is no curriculum designed for deaf students.

Volunteers have several options for working with people with special needs:

  1. Center for Children with Intellectual Disabilities,
  2. A school for deaf children
  3. Disabled home
