Therapy for special needs
INSPIREnepal is specialized in special needs and their care. In Nepal, there are many children and youngsters with mental or physical disabilities. When you have a disability in Nepal it is viewed as a mistake and that you have done something bad in your past life. Families are ashamed of their children and keep their children isolated from the outside world or they put them on the streets and in children’s homes.
Fortunately, more and more schools care for children with special needs. Most of these schools do not have the right resources, finances or knowledge to help these children optimally. Therefore your knowledge is needed to help the teachers and the children develop.
Special education always needs volunteers who have studied physiotherapy, occupational therapy, pedagogy, social workers, music or art therapy, teachers or other social studies. We only allow volunteers with an relatable studie for this program as the special needs need specific care and we want to offer quality. Your tasks will depend on your job/study.
The most important thing for these children is to receive love and attention. Their development is behind but they are still clever and ambitious children who need a little bit more attention to develop, where you as a volunteer are of great importance!
Since our vision of INSPIREnepal is to achieve development through creative activities, we want you to use your imagintion to achieve goals through games, music, arts, dance and sports. We can always provide ideas or work together to make sure that you can make the most of your work.
