Nitin Cerebral Palsy Society (NCPS) founder urges all the individuals across the globe to help Nitin Cerebral Palsy Society urgently so that it can continue its vital work supporting children with cerebral palsy in Nepal as it is struggling to pay its staff salary, rent of its rental property and rental bus, etc. The founder reported it is running out of available funds in its bank account as the amount of donation from donor and fund raising activities surprisingly dropped significantly last year as well as COVID -19 economic crises has also impacted it too.
Nitin Cerebral Palsy Society (NCPS) is a not for profit and non-government organisation located in Kathmandu, Nepal. It is registered with Nepal Social Welfare Council. NCPS is a charity service founded by one of the parents of child with cerebral palsy which is dedicated to improve the quality of life of people diagnosed with cerebral palsy in Nepal. It helps achieve its clients and their family’s goal through holistic approach and evidence based management program. What is Cerebral palsy
Cerebral Palsy(CP) is the most common physical disability found in children across the world. People with Cerebral Palsy experience dysfunction/disorder of movements of limbs (whole or a part), their body and posture. Their normal motor developmental milestones become delayed and activities of daily living (ADLs) are affected.
Population- based studies from around the world report prevalence estimates of Cerebral Palsy (CP) ranging from 1.5 to more than 4 per 1000 live births or children of a defined age range. However, the prevalence of people diagnosed with CP in Nepal is unknown.
There is no cure for cerebral palsy but existing impairments can be reduced and managed by a holistic approach including therapies by allied health professionals, surgical/medical interventions and assistive devices. These helps to foster independence, reduce barriers and increase inclusion.
In comparison to children who have “normal developmental milestone”, children with CP have limited social participation as well as quality of life and self-perception, predominately in physical domains. These problems we believe are even more prevalent in a country like Nepal with limited resources for the disabled and poor educational awareness of disabilities. About the project
Currently, NCPS is running a program called ‘Day Program/ day care center' with 14 regular children with special need. It commenced its service from November 2015. It is more than just a care center. A part from providing care for the children it also provides services such as Special education, Computer education, Physiotherapy, Vocational and recreational activities, Play therapy, community-based activities, Outing etc. It also provides nutritious 2-course meal to the children to fight against mal nourishment and bus service to pick up and return children from their house. It has sucessfully celebrated its 5th anniversary of its service and during this short period of time, it has made a great impact in the children with CP, society and political level with the help of its well wishers, community and its team. NCPS also organised various awareness program in the society and brought attention of minister of Nepal regarding cerebral palsy.
‘Janahit Sewa Prathisthan’ awarded NCPS for providing good service in the community on 2017. During 5 years, NCPS’s activities were limited by lack of enough funding. Despite the limitation, with support of our well-wishers and the community NCPS has been able to make a huge impact in the life of the children with cerebral palsy and their parent, in the society as well as bring awareness to state and national level as well as bring attention of minister of Nepal in a short duration. You want to know more about us and our past and latest activities please follow our facebook page (link details mentioned below).
We want to continue our vital work and do more for these disadvantaged children and for people affected by other related disabilities utilising our experienced professionals for this we will always need your ongoing support from your end especially with funding. Fund related
To date, we have not received any fund from Nepal government as well as from INGO’s. So, it is vital to receive ongoing individual, community and business support. We have been running this organisation since 5 years totally on donation received from individual donors form Nepal and overseas, community and funds raised from fund raising events. The amount of donations donated by the donor were on there own will with no commitments.
The fund collected will help us run the program for a year. The fund collected will be used for food for the children, buy toys, stationary and hygiene products for the children, pay rent of rental property where day program is currently running, pay hired bus service, staff salary, other admin cost to run the project. Every dollar donated counts and means a lot and can help in the movement to make a difference in the life of people with cerebral palsy in Nepal. (Donation of only $10 by 2,500 people across the world can make a huge difference in life of 14 disadvantaged children and their parents in Nepal for a year.)
Let’s get together and do our bits from different angle so that we can look after one of our disadvantaged members of our society responsibly. Together, we can help build a better future for Nepali people living with disabilities and their families.
