Our Major Activities
Since 2000, Patan CBR has been operating a day-care centre for children with multiple disabilities, in Shankhamul, Lalitpur. In 2002, this centre was extended to provide a unit for specialist education for children with educational disabilities.
In a country where disability was, until recently, hidden away, one of Patan CBR's main objectives is to increase awareness at all levels, from families to central government.
It is estimated that around 40% of disability in the region is due to disease and accidents, both of which are largely preventable.

School Education Program
Patan CBR provides school education to those who are capable to learn something. Under this program 30 CWDs are getting an education. We use visual communication rather than the lecture method to make understand them.

It covers five remote wards of southern part of the district namely: Malta, Pyutar, Asrang, Gimdi of Bagmati Rural Municipality and Thuladurlung of Mahankal Rural Municipality. The main objective of the project is to bring Children with Disabilities into the mainstream school.
We receive very little funding from the Government of Nepal and rely on donations and sponsorship from charitable organizations and individuals. We had a major donor SCN Norway (SCNN) up to 2009. It used to support 64% of the total expenditure of the organization per year.
