Daphne commented on The IN-stitute, the Action Tank for Inclusive Change.

Sadly the handout/funding culture rife with beneficiaries suffering. However coming up to the Earthquake anniversary, reminds us of the relief work and activism of Nepali youth that shone through despite all the government and donor barriers. As you say with a strong curriculum, effective partner coordination, incentivization with tailored benefits to all, then behavioural economics fundamentals come to play and a more sustainable model.

Well done Simo and ENGAGE. Your inclusive model for empowering, the very passionate and capable Nepali youth to volunteer and support their peers is already evidently, working well with wheelchair basketball. I am confident that this idea will garner momentum to achieve the much needed attitudinal and behaviour change with regards to disability in Nepal.

Further to comments from others, this idea in my opinion too, will work best by engaging and partnering with the key stakeholders (you are the best placed to sift through the plethora of players in the sector) and also to ensure the youth own and drive the activities that they come up with and are fully supported to deliver.

Wishing you and the team the best of luck.
