Special Initiatives

ENGAGE has being supporting vulnerable children living in Ichangu Narayan, a community in the outskirt of Kathmandu. ENGAGE ensures that eleven children can attend school on regular basis by equipping them with school materials, including books, stationeries and uniforms and by following up with their families.

Coaching4Fun against the Quake is an initiative that was launched by ENGAGE in the aftermath of the quakes who hit the country in April and May 2015. As per the project, persons with permanent disability or injury due to the earthquakes will be identified and encouraged to start a new personal and professional journey that starts with sport playing. The same program will also encourage volunteerism and leadership among the disabled and at the same time help them in achieving new goals in life.

The pilot project is inspired by Coaching4Fun (C4F). The C4F is the flagship program of ENGAGE that partners with youths living with disabilities through sport playing, volunteering and leadership development. By getting involved in a sport team and by working on their personal and professional goals, youths living with disabilities are encouraged not only to volunteer but also to lead in their communities.

ENGAGE implemented Coaching4Fun against the Quake thanks to the support of Asia Pacific University Community Engagement Network (APUCEN), the leading university network promoting service and volunteerism in the Asia Pacific region, MMICARE Association, a leading women empowerment organization from Malaysia, Universiti Sains Malaysia and the Kyoto University of Foreign Studies (Japan)
