Spotlight on a project

The Organisation for Nepalese Culture and Welfare (ONCW) recently held a health awareness workshop to promote their walking project to the Nepalese population in Aberdeen. To encourage attendance, a cultural programme with entertainment was held after the workshop, which 60 people attended. 

The workshop included a presentation about the benefits of regular walking and an introduction to the physical activity guidelines. Walk participants were encouraged to share their experience with other community members, which ONCW has found to be an effective way of promoting their health walks. Walking shoes were also presented as a reward to regular walk participants and volunteer walk leaders.

The project currently runs family walks every Saturday morning which are attended by all generations of the Nepalese community. ONCW has also produced a short video about their walks.  If you would like more information email the project here
