Who We Are

The Technical Skill & Development Center for the Blind & Disabled (TSDCBD) in Katmandu, Nepal is a non-profit organization. Our mission is to improve the living standards of blind and disabled people in Nepal. We aim to increase their self-esteem and become financially self supporting by offering vocational training for a period of six months.

We believe integration is part of the curriculum, so in our center we work with blind, deaf, disabled and able people alike. Since 1991 blind and disabled people have shown us continuously that they are able to make beautiful things by working together. Our ‘Art of the Heart’ products are a perfect example.

We also help our students after they finish their training at TSDCBD, by assisting them in either finding employment or encouraging them to start their own business. TSDCBD also markets the products made by our former students. They supply the different products; TSDCBD controls the quality and sells the products both nationally and internationally. Please browse our website to view these unique products and possible ways to support our work.
Key Aims & Objectives of TSDCBD
  • To eliminate superstitious beliefs, such as those which hold that blindness & disability are a curse of God.
  • To demonstrate that blind and disabled people are capable workers.
  • To boost the morale of blind & disabled people by giving them training and to help them to find suitable jobs.
  • To enhance the socialisation process of people with disabilities by creating a positive attitude towards disability.
  • To build the capacities of people with disabilities so that they may claim their rights and entitlements from society and the state.
  • To support people with disabilities to be self-reliant through social, economic and medical rehabilitation.
