Seminar for the founding of Masterplan
CWNU was the only chosen school among national public universities as the leader of international cooperation and supporting business by the Ministry of Education. Currently, ODA (Official Development Assistance) for Nepal is ongoing. This business is to aid community development programs and for constructing much needed departments in an underdeveloped country by making the best use of resources and capacity of a public university. Nepal has some of the most deficient facilities and policies for disabled people in the world. Therefore, CWNU supports the business of special education in Nepal, which has deep significance in and of itself. Since the introduction of this support, the scale for support in Nepal has expanded from kindergarten to high school through contact with the Ministry of Education in Nepal. On August 21, CWNU stated that it will aid a medium to long-term development plan by creating the Department of Special Education and Graduate School in Tribhuvan, the best public university in the country.
