Transforming lives in Nepal for over 25 years
Through our sustained efforts over the last 25 years, together with our local partners, government agencies and other service providers, we have achieved a remarkable impact on the lives of thousands of children and young people growing up in urban poverty in Nepal – one of the poorest and most overlooked countries in the world.
