ORIGINS

Sathi Sansar Nepal (SSN) is a Non Government Organization fully committed to help children and people in difficult circumstances. SSN's origin came about informal manner among likeminded few committed Nepali development practitioners and some Catalan and French humanitarian workers deployed in Nepal, after the glaring needs of children living with disability in the society. In the beginning, the team decided to work with disable children. The term 'disable children' self was very vague. After identifying the needs later decided to work only with 'children are living with cerebral palsy (CP)'.

Since 2006 SSN initiate Special Education Center (SEC) service for children living with CP with highlighting deem need in Kaski district. The main objective was to improve the quality of life of children living with CP. During the process of working, the community raised a demand for more services. We were not able to provide all service through SEC therefore then expanded our services through Community Outreach Program.
