Our 2nd training on this trip to Nepal was held down in the South in a city near the birthplace of Buddha (Lumbini) right close to the India border. We had 17 class participants, mostly Physiotherapists who were an enthusiastic and capable bunch. 25 people were assessed and fit for wheelchairs and we were joined by Raju, the Nepal Physiotherapy Association President, who was also in the area to organize a new chapter of the PT Assoc. in Rupendehi District.

We returned to Nepal after an invitation from the Nepal Physical Therapy Association to come back and conduct another wheelchair training especially for their membership. We just completed the first training here in Kathmandu with 16 Physical Therapist and one Occupational Therapist. It has been an amazing 3 days and we are so proud of these great Therapists and their desire to learn these skills. Today they evaluated 27 people and gave out 24 well assessed and fit wheelchairs.
