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.
