INTELLECTUAL DISABLE CHILDREN HOME
& Rehabilitation Center
Ujeli Foundation Nepal(UF NEPAL) is a nongovernmental and nonprofit making, registered behavioral welfare center that was established in 2014 to create humanitarian behavior and services to the needy peoples with different kinds of disabilities from deprived family ,natural calamities, disable people and to rehabilitate them or to use them in development. It was founded on the belief that each person with an intellectual and/or developmental disability has the capacity for growth and development, a right to services that enhance well-being, quality of life, and opportunities to learn. In the changing context, being an organization working in a specific area of disability, the primary aim of the center is to rehabilitate the children in the community like normal children by teaching basic social and practical skills they need in their daily life.
Every child has the right to get the quality education in his or her vicinity. There has been a negative impact in learning to the children with disability due to the lack of disability friendly environment in most of the normal schools. Consequently, denial to admit the children with disability, lack of special care, higher repetition rate, lower promotion rate, and lack of health related services are commonly experiencing across the country. To cope with these problems, UF Nepal has aimed to provide multiple services with better education aiming to rehabilitate for their better life. UF Nepal believes that even those with the most challenging behaviors can respond to dignified interaction in a structured, meaningful program with well-trained and supervised staff and the appropriate client/staff ratio.
In addition to the services provided to the children, there are several other trainings supporting to rehabilitation and therapeutic services to the adults. Different therapeutic services (such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, sensory therapy and medical massage); regular health checkup; transportation services; and morning and day meal are provided in a regular basis.
Mainstreaming the disable children to live an improved and fruitful life by providing care, support & protection through shelter, food and education is our mission.
