On March 31, 2021, Blind Rocks! for the very first time in the history of Nepal organized an Inclusive Wall Climb Adventure for people with blindness and visually impairments at Astrek Climbing Wall Pvt Ltd., Thamel.
The event offered the 15 young, enthusiastic participants a major confidence boost by instilling in them the belief that if they could scale a high wall, they could then do any activity that was considered as being adventurous and exciting by society.
We are extremely grateful to our event partners, Astrek Climbing Wall Pvt Ltd, for their generous support. A highlight of the event was the announcement of Mr. Saman Shrestha, the winner of the Roadies Reality Show/National Rock Climber, as an adventure ambassador of Blind Rocks!.We welcome Mr. Saman Shrestha of Guffy Monkey into the Blind Rocks! family and would like to express our deep gratitude to him for his support and endorsement of our cause. We would also like to film maker, Ms. Shanta Nepali, and Ms. Krishna Shrestha from Sustainable Himalayan Foundation for their tremendous support.
We look forward to having many more of such empowering events for people with blindness and visual impairments because blind people can and should be able to live full lives like everyone else.
