About Us

Nepal’s national cerebral palsy charity.


Cerebral Palsy Nepal (registered as Self-Help Group for Cerebral Palsy, Nepal) is Nepal’s only non-governmental and non-profit organization dedicated to supporting people with cerebral palsy and their families. Since our foundation over 25 years ago, we have helped thousands of individuals with cerebral palsy and development delay to overcome many of the barriers they face, and to live happy and fulfilled lives.

Our programmes directly benefit 1,500 children with cerebral palsy a year.

From our specialist centre in Dhapakhel, Lalitpur, we run a complete rehabilitation service for children with cerebral palsy and their parents, as well as a school and vocational training centre for up to 50 children, and a residential scheme for families living outside of the Kathmandu Valley.

Our community programmes help us to reach many more unable to visit our centre. Through our home visitors, care centres, medical camps and other initiatives, we support individuals and families in 15 of Nepal’s 75 districts.

Despite the progress we have made, we are only scratching the service of what remains a chronic, under-resourced problem in Nepal. We are grateful to the continuing support of donors, parents and volunteers in helping us to reach the thousands more affected by this debilitating condition.

Cerebral Palsy Nepal is an associate organization member of the International Cerebral Palsy Society, London.
