Programs

At our training center in Kathmandu, we aim to achieve sustainable livelihoods for the disabled people who study with us.  Disabled people are referred from villages and medical centres around the country.  On arrival the students all receive training in sign language or Braille or mobility as appropriate.  There are core skills modules and thereafter students can choose from Computer Training,   English and Office Management,  Candle, and Chalk Making, Incense Stick Making,  Art,  Clay work,  Knitting,  Weaving , Tailoring, Embroidery,  Mobile Phone Repair, or IT.   Students typically choose three modules for their 6 month stay and there is provision to try things for a week or two and then to switch to a different module if the first choice is not suitable.  The switching can be initiated by the student or by the trainers who will of course assess and check suitability over the early weeks in each skill area. 

 

In addition to the training modules there are income generating projects, educational support, music and physiotherapy activities as well as a health centre to support the students.

 
Furthermore we provide medical services, such as surgery, physiotherapy and medication to our students. After completion of the courses students receive a certificate which explains their technical skills and value on the job market.

We also offer a three-year program to young children and a three-month program for teachers who wish to work with disabled children.
