Children In Need (CIN)
Huge barriers to education and healthcare for children with disabilities in developing countries.
Based on the governments’ conservative figure from recent analysis, there are at least 15 million children with disabilities in South Asia itself. Most of these children are prevented from getting education and basic healthcare even from government including assistive equipment support.
Everyone faces hardships and difficulties at one time or other but for children with disabilities, barriers can be more frequent and have greater impact (especially in developing countries like Nepal where getting support is very rare).
Awareness for education and materials for study are the basic (but very important) steps towards educated society. Many people in developing countries (like Nepal) are unaware to the importance of education and they don't want to send their kids to the school. Almost 60% school age children in South Asian countries does doesn't go to the school because either their parents don't want to send (lack of education) or they can't afford to pay the educational costs (including study materials).
Financial hardship is one of the major issues which is restricting children to go to school in developing countries like Nepal. Nepal has more than two million children out of school due to financial hardship as their parents are unable to pay school fees. We people living in developed countries are very lucky that our kids are getting good education. So now it is our social responsibility to support those kids who can’t afford to pay their school fees.
Nepalese School Support – one million children are out of school due to recent earthquake
At least 1,500 schools were affected by recent massive earthquake in Nepal on 25 April (and subsequent aftershocks). 575 schools are completely flattened and others are partially damaged. It might take long to get these schools ready for the classes, particularly due to lack of fund with government and school itself. Most of these schools are in remote villages and they hardly have any resources to rebuild the school. Most of them also need temporary setup before they build-up the schools.
