Physical education is something the Nepali schools know about in theory but do not put into practice. The children spend, besides their lunch break, all of their school day in their classrooms for 6 days a week. Even after school, most of the children do not have the opportunity to sport. Since most families are not able to afford it and do not have the knowledge about the benefits of sport.
We organize sport days for children's homes and we have an annual sport day for 50 deaf kids. It is important for the kids to move, to play, to improve their physical and motor skills, to bond with each other. Sports is just to way to achieve all the above!
We always play in team so the kids get to know each other better, they have to cheer for each other, the have their own team color and handshake.
In the end every team will be getting a present according their winning position but every child will get a medal.
This helps boost their self-confidence so much!
