POSTED BY:

A group of Nepali NGOs are organizing a wheelchair Sports clinic and basketball tournament from May 10-12. Wheelchair Athletes Worldwide (WAW), USA based NGO will donate 11 sports wheelchairs for the event, which is being funded entirely from in-kind corporate donations.

Wheelchair Athletes Worldwide (WAW), a small American NGO, is partnering with a variety of Nepali NGOs including Nepal Wheelchair Rugby Association (NWRA), Nepal Spinal Injury Sports Association, Nepal Physiotherapy Association, Bikash Nepal, VSO Nepal, ENGAGE2 (providing volunteers), CSRC (providing accommodation), the government through Nepal Paralympic Committee and the National Sports Council, who provided an in-kind donation of the Covered Hall as well as, a variety of corporates including DRAGONAIR/Cathay Pacific providing free transport of 11 donated sports wheelchairs from Los Angles to Kathmandu, Chaudhary Group (CG Foundation), providing Wai-Wai and soft drinks, gold medals for all athletes and a banner, the Himalayan providing four advertisements, Bottlers Nepal, providing soft drinks, International College of Hospitality Management (ICHM) providing meals, Media Gallery providing advertisement design, FORCE providing a TV Show and Nature Trail Travels and Tours providing transportation for wheelchair athletes.

This entire activity has been accomplished through only in-kind donations. The event provides more opportunities as per the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), as well as the beginning of infrastructure, through the donation by WAW of sports wheelchairs. This event, combined with recent Danish training, will be used as a springboard for developing further capacity amongst players and coaches of wheelchair sports. For Nepali society this provides the public with another forum for understanding that Persons with Disabilities are no different in their desires than anyone else, in the long run leading to more inclusion. Combining with corporates as a CSR activity, this event has huge implications for Nepali society and further integrating Persons with Disabilities into the mainstream.

The major goal of the Nepal project is to improve and strengthen the mental, physical, and social outlook and build capacity of Persons with Disabilities in Nepal, as well as, encouraging the public to become involved in creating more inclusion. This will be done by:

1) providing modern, competitive, newer sport wheelchairs to use in adaptive sports programs;
2) conducting interactive clinics and demonstrations; and
3) inviting the public to attend.

Dan Altan, President of WAW will be coming to Nepal. Michael Rosenkrantz who is a VSO volunteer in Nepal, is coordinating the entire event. The detail of the event can be followed at http://www.facebook.com/nepalbasketball
