Our partner organization Matri Griha Nepal supports disabled and disadvantaged children for more than 15 years now. Children who come from socially deprived families often have no chance at all of an adequate education and vocational training, disabled children are rarely provided in sufficient way. Disability therefore becomes a curse in a country that has such severe economic problems as Nepal. Nepal is the poorest country in South Asia and one of the twelve poorest countries in the world and relies heavily on foreign aid. Social and cultural stigmatization is often added to the enormous economic burden with families literally hiding their disabled children of fear of discrimination. Nepal Matri Griha helps them with a children's home, ist own school and a therapy center.
