Situation of children, youth and women
Nepal is one of the lowest developed countries in the world, where live very poor and disadvantaged sections of the population. After the ten years lasting civil war is Nepal since 2006 in a constant new political orientation. Since 2008 the political parties works on a democratic constitution and is until now not successful. So from the viewpoint of the poor and disadvantaged people all political energy goes to political quarrels between different parties at the charge of effective activities against the social emergency in the country.
Malnutrition, a lack of jobs and sufficient income maintenance and common violence in the society and especially against women, youth and children are some of the most observable problems in the country.
The poor people have a very low chance to get education and information what would be the basic background to change their life, because they are fully engaged to secure their livelihood.
Nepal’s democratic process is in transition with the development of new constitution. The interim constitution 2007 has promised the rights of children, women and disadvantage people but its implementation has yet to be realized. Policy makers and government officials including social workers and teachers are aware and looking for alternative methods of education and new approaches.
The mission of Children Nepal
The mission of Children Nepal (CN) is to serve the poor where public assistance is not available or not sufficient. In its social work since 1995 CN all the time worked on the most necessary needs of its clients. By its engagement for disadvantaged children and their families is CN already in contact with the poorest social classes in the Nepalese society in Pokhara area.

How you can Help?
