It is the only organization for differently abled people in Nepal that is leading the Independent Living Movement and using its position to push the government to improve conditions for those living with disabilities in Nepal. Their primary categories of work include:
- Peer support

CIL-Kathmandu also invests in studies and research in the field of assistive devices to discover new technologies and innovative approaches, to ensure that people with disabilities receive the best possible support available.
Where will the funds go?
