Kidasha Nepal is a children’s charity that improves the lives of children living in extreme poverty in one of the poorest countries in the world

With 1 in 4 people living below the poverty line, it is unsurprising that 1.6 million children have to work. Many of these children, like Anuj and Sarita, are trafficked from villages and tricked into working. See how we got them both back home...

Nepal has over 500,000 children living in extreme poverty in urban areas, where they are particularly vulnerable to violence, abuse and exploitation. For example, children like Chinta, who was being exploited by local youths and about to drop out of school. See how we changed that.

As UK schools team up for this week’s #WalkToSchool challenge, we’d like to highlight the importance of access to education in Nepal.
