The majority of Nepal’s population is under 18. As a result of the country’s past internal armed conflict, 40,000 children have been displaced, 8,000 orphaned, while countless others are in need of assistance.
While 70% of Nepali children begin primary school, half of them drop out before they reach secondary school at age 11. More often that not families can’t afford to send their children to school, or need them to work on the farm or at home.
We believe education to be paramount: it can lift children out of poverty forever and gives children opportunities for the rest of their lives.

We evaluate our programmes regularly to determine how they can be more effective. The evaluations include measuring the outcomes of each programme on the children we help, their parents, and their communities, comparing these outcomes to similar metrics in previous years, and comparing the health and academic progress of children we support to the national averages in Nepal. Furthermore, the Social Welfare Council of the government of Nepal evaluates our organisation every five years.
We continue to work with the government and other organisations such as the Department of Education, Child Heath Division, Central Child Welfare Board & District Welfare Boards, District Public Health Offices, UNICEF and many more to ensure the longevity and success of our programmes.
