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 27 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.
Providing a route out of poverty for families of children with cerebral palsy
Many families of children with cerebral palsy in Nepal are impoverished, with the condition exacerbating their situation. The programme helps to provide families with a route out of poverty by funding the education of siblings of children with cerebral palsy.
In the short-term, the scholarships directly help to lessen the burden on the family’s finances; in the long-term, they help to provide siblings with the education they need to make the most of their opportunities in life. In turn, this will help the family to provide the best care for the cerebral palsy child even after the parents are gone.
