Boosting literacy, spreading happiness
Around 8% of school children in Nepal do not know how to read and write. World Vision’s literacy programme has given a new hope to provide quality education to underprivileged children.
From fallow to farming
Up until two years ago, Nir Bahadur’s farm was barren. This farmer from Udayapur district was hardly utilising his land, sowing only rice and maize. Read how his life has improved with the help of World Vision Nepal.
Since 2001, World Vision International (WVI) Nepal has been working for the well-being of children, partnering with communities and government bodies at the local level in some of the most remote areas in different districts of Nepal. After the devastating earthquakes struck Nepal in April and May 2015, WVI Nepal responded with immediate relief followed by recovery and rehabilitation efforts in ten of the worst-hit districts to benefit more than half a million people in Nepal. At present, WVI Nepal's development programmes are being implemented in 12 districts of 7 provinces across the country with a goal to address the causes of poverty and inequity for the sustained well-being of one million children by 2020.
Our development programmes in the areas of education; health; protection; and resilience focussing on agriculture and economic development, youth economic development and disaster risk management support the most vulnerable children and communities in Nepal.
Promoting Disaster Risk Reduction
World Vision has been conducting training programmes on Disaster Management to various Educational Institution, primarily to generate awareness about unsafe building practices that can put children at risk.
Making the dream of quality education a reality
As part of the CVA Initiative, children and community people were trained on public policy and services that are being offered by the Government. Equipped with this training, various services were then being evaluated and a plan of action drawn out by the communities themselves.
