Adarsha Bal Vikas Kendra School
ABVK, (Adarsha Bal Vikas Kendra) is a school for physically and mentally handicapped children in Banepa, a small town about twelve miles east of Kathmandu, Nepal. The school is run by Mani Shrestha and has about 45 children and older students with severe learning difficulties and physical handicaps. Aidan and Caroline Warlow, who have done much important educational work in Nepal, have been involved with the school for several years and greatly admire its work. They suggested that Juniper Trust could help support their work and raise money for a new physiotherapy unit. The implications of the innovative work of this little school will be immense and the medical department of Kathmandu University are taking an interest in the project as an example of best practice.
