Volunteer Society Nepal : The best experience for volunteers, the best value for Nepal.

Workshop at Center for Children with Disabilities

Center for Children with Intellectual Disabilities organized a one day workshop on introduction and interaction. The workshop is in  cooperation with Volunteer Society Nepal (VSN)

About the Workshop

VSN wants to improve the quality of services provided to children with intellectual disabilities. Therefore, this workshop is held on Sunday the 4th of December. It is held at the center itself in New Baneshwor, Kathmandu. Different organizations working with intellectually disabled children were asked to come. As a result, eleven guests from different organizations actively participated in the program, sharing their experiences and professional knowledge. All the guests with in depth knowledge and years of experiences gave very helpful instructions to CCID. Several subjects such as the care, training, therapies, counseling and rehabilitation are discussed during the program.

Results of the Workshop

All the organizations are very positive in providing further knowledge exchange to CCID. One idea is to form a network among the people working with intellectual disabilities.
