Brief introduction of CDCA
Center for Disabled Children Assistance (CDCA) is a non profitable, non political social organization working in the area of disability especially in children with physical disabilities (CwDs), health, sanitation & hygiene and women empowerment areas. It is officially registered in District Administration Office (DAO) of Kathmandu in 2006 with the registration number-861. And, is affiliated with Social Welfare Council (SWC) in 2011 (affiliation number-20,726).
This organization was initiated by Mr Dendi Sherpa with the vision to provide safe shelter and quality life to CwDs children’s Mr. Dendi Sherpa is professionally a tourist guide. And, therefore, he travels all over the Nepal mostly with foreigners particularly in the Himalayan regions. While travelling, the worst and most pitiable lives of CwDs those mostly from the remotest part of the country strike in his mind to do something towards making difference in their lives. He found that those CwDs are extremely excluded from the family, society and even from the geographical structures. So far, he had similar experiences in his childhood. These all factors motivated him eternally to establish a “CDCA Home” so that those CwDs can live and, challenge the difficulties to bring the differences in their lives.
With this initiatives, CDCA has currently sixteen children with physical disabilities (9 boys & 7 girls) ranging ages from 5 to 18 years old who are from different parts of the districts viz. Gorakha, Jumla, Khotang, Solukhumbu,Sindhupalchowk and Dolakha districts of Nepal. All these districts are geographically remotest, socio-economically and educationally disadvantaged. Therefore, CDCA is providing them intensive care with homely environment, medical treatment to combat with disabilities and school education to impart light of knowledge in their life.
