HOPE DISABILITY CENTRE
Hope Centre supports all disabled persons of Gulmi, and other districts of Nepal, with community-based projects and programmes that improve their mobility, health, education, human rights and legal counselling, skills’ training and employment, so they live with dignity, self-worth, independence with basic rights in the community. We believe that “promoting self-help, rather than offering sympathy” to our disabled members is the most effective way for members’ rehabilitation and usefulness in a country that has had a long struggle with militancy, gender inequality, caste system, discrimination, human rights’ violations, political mismanagement and poverty.Ganga, manager helping a patient with physio.
When Ms Ganga Rayamajhi (now Chairwoman of Hope Centre) was 17 years old she was fitted with her first set of artificial limbs, having lost both legs as a baby from a kitchen fire.
In 2006 Hope Centre was formally registered locally and nationally and in the last 5 years has steadily grown in capacity and effectiveness, supporting all disabled persons who request help.
In 2009 the permanent Hope Centre ground floor was built on donated land with funds raised.
In 2011/12 the second floor was built with funds donated by the Petersen family and raised by the Bundeena Support Group in Sydney Australia.
The Hope Disability Centre now established its place as the only such effective, caring rehabilitation centre in this district of 300,000 people.
The other Board Members actively volunteer their time to support the 7 full-time staff who manage the Hope Centre.
Fundraising helps keep the power on and doors open.
By improving the mobility of disabled members and offering skills’ training we aim to help members regain their health, independence, dignity and achieve financial independence. Most disabled persons in Nepal have lower access to opportunities and education, so we also support many members with school fees and help with tools that can generate income, such as sewing machines.
