Sama Nepal

Our local partner

Sama NEPAL (www.samanepal.org) is a non-profit organization established in 2015, with whom we launched and run the « Kudhkilo » programme to promote barrier free, inclusive and right based opportunities to everyone excluded from the right to education.

Objectives

  • inclusion of children excluded from mainstream education because of special needs, religion, caste, gender, poverty etc.
  • sensitisation, awareness and advocacy about the right for all to have an education.

How do we do it

Through the « Kudhkilo » programme we:

  • facilitate mainstream schooling through supporting in teaching/learning activities and other needs (activities of daily life) together with teachers and school
  • provide/coordinate healthcare and rehabilitation services
  • provide/coordinate medical and other assistive devices
  • provide educational material and improve accessibility
  • run awareness/advocacy programmes (for children, parents, families, communities, school families, teachers, self-help groups)

In every district where we work, we follow the same process in order to see inclusion spread throughout Nepal:

We work in and through:

  • Focus school : In each district we cooperate with one or more focus school(s), where our inclusion facilitators offer intensive support.
  • Other partner schools : In other partner schools of the district we provide awareness programmes and various types of support for individuals who are included in mainstream classes
  • Resource class/care center : ideally these classes / centers are part of the focus schools and allow us primarly to bring differently abled children out of invisibility and inside the school.
