Impact Report: It Takes Nepal to End Child Marriage

World Vision Nepal's "It Takes Nepal to End Child Marriage" campaign ran from 2017-2023, reaching nearly 450,000 children and preventing 561 marriages. Collaborating with government, communities, and youth, it influenced 44 policies and implemented successful strategies in 24 rural areas. To end child marriage by 2030, WVI Nepal recommends updating the National Strategy, strengthening local protection systems, and increasing budget for empowering programs. Lets keep the momentum alive.

World Vision International Nepal


World Vision International (WVI) Nepal is a part of the World Vision International global partnership operating in nearly 100 countries. World Vision helped those affected by the Udayapur earthquake in 1988 and the flood victims in 1993 and WVI started its long-term development programme in Nepal since 2001 to contribute for well-being of children. At present, WVI Nepal has long-term development programmes in 16 districts, namely Udayapur, Sarlahi, Mahottari, Rautahat, Sindhuli, Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Lamjung, Jumla, Kailali, Kanchanpur, Achham, Doti, Dailekh, Jajarkot and Bajhang across six provinces of Nepal. Our mission is to assist 0.8 million children, with a particular focus on those who are most vulnerable within the strategy period of 2021-2025. 

We take a reconciliation approach to issues of injustice and poverty, and we put the children and community at the centre of choosing what is appropriate for them.  WVI Nepal knows that children are at risk of abuse, exploitation, and coercion, so we work to protect them. We support changing a child’s life over time by partnering with their family and community to address the causes of children’s vulnerability and poverty. Through community need-based interventions, WVI Nepal’s programmes are aligned with government priorities. These programmes directly contribute to the SDGs and Periodic Plan of government.

World Vision implements the country's strategy of development, advocacy and disaster management programs through integrated sectoral interventions with innovation in local communities and neighbourhoods. The current programmes focus on education, health, nutrition, protection, resilience, disaster risk reduction, community engagement, and sponsorship. They also prioritize gender equality and social inclusion to improve the well-being of children. Over half of these programs are long-term and have been implemented for over 10 years in various areas.

Guided by its global child sponsorship standards in maximizing child well-being from our programme, WVI Nepal works with WV’s global office, funding or support offices throughout the world and receives funding from individuals, foundations, corporations, multi-lateral agencies and governments. Individuals called child sponsors and corporations provide most of our funding, both in the long term and short term. We receive goods supported by the private sector through our support office and get institutional funding from multi-laterals and bi-lateral agencies as grants. Grants allow us to further deepen our impact on children, their families and their communities.

We work by our global financial and accountability standards and take the stewardship of the resources of our donors seriously. We set high standards of professional competence, best practice and financial accountability for what we do.
