Many are never employed and instead spend their lives at home, dependent on their families. The Vocational Training Unit strives to give some individuals the vocational skills they need for life beyond Cerebral Palsy Nepal. The centre teaches older children and young adults a wide range of handicrafts, such as weaving, stitching, candle-making and painting, and many others.
