This is the ongoing post from 2 CNIB employees who are in Nepal, helping children with vision loss, and telling us what is happening.
This is a story of bravery and courage shown in the hearts of the children who are blind in Nepal. Courage is –not that you don't feel afraid but that you try anyway. When we talk after the long walk some of them say they felt afraid but after they started walking it was very enjoyable.

The drop-offs are in all directions –forwards, sideways, and all around. The terrain is rocky, crowded and environment is constantly changing.

Like all children, they are playful. They want to explore and are always pushing their own limits.
