We are a small international development charity making a BIG impact in Nepal.
We have a unique understanding of the complex issues facing children and families living in urban poverty and extensive experience developing, piloting and scaling up programmes that deliver real impact and drive long-term social and systems change.
All children growing up in urban Nepal are assured of a safe and bright future.
To increase aspiration, resilience and opportunities for children living in urban poverty in Nepal.
As a values driven organisation our strategy and decision making link directly to our core values.
Equity – Every child and their situation is unique. We ensure that our support responds to children’s real needs.
Perseverance – We do whatever it takes to achieve lasting change. We don’t shy away from tackling complex problems.
Agility – We are nimble and flexible. We rapidly adapt to face new challenges head on.
Honesty – We tell it how it is, even when it’s not what someone wants to hear. That way we remain true to the children and communities we support.
Humility – we focus our efforts on achieving real impact and addressing children’s real needs. We tell their stories, not ours.
What makes us different?
At Kidasha, we stand out from large aid agencies because we are flexible, adaptable, and responsive. Our holistic person-centred approach prioritises building local capacity and creating long-term impact. Our strength lies in reaching excluded and hard-to-reach groups, made possible through our close and trusting relationships with the local communities we support.
We have a niche geographical focus – addressing urban poverty in a single country, Nepal.
Transparency is incredibly important to us and our partners, and we provide a clear understanding of how funds are utilised. We strive for efficiency, impact, and value for money, whilst staying representative of our beneficiary group.
