PLAN NEPAL

Plan has been working in Nepal since 1978, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, economic security and protection.

In the hundreds of communities that we work with, there are difficulties accessing adequate health care and sanitation. The communities are often impoverished, which can leave them vulnerable. 

Plan Nepal reclaims children’s rights through programmes and participatory activities that place children at the centre of their own development.

Currently, one of our priorities is supporting early childhood care and development centres to secure young children’s right to a good education. More than 30,000 children are benefiting from the programme.

Plan is also working with local organisations and government agencies to ensure that policies to protect child rights are central in the new constitution.

PLAN’S CORE ACTIVITIES IN NEPAL

Plan Nepal has 6 programme units in the central and eastern parts of the country. Plan Nepal’s core areas of activity include
