Save the Children has been operating in Nepal since 1976. Our programs to improve the lives of children in Nepal are guided by the National Plan of Action for Children and the UN Millennium Development Goals. As the largest child-focused organization in the Nepal, we cover a wide geographical area with multiple programs that support our vision for all children to attain the right to survival, protection, development and participation.

We work with key child rights stakeholders – including children, communities, civil society organizations, media and government – to enable them to play a stronger role to realize the rights of children.  We look for sustainable solutions that will benefit children and their communities by improving education and healthcare systems, and helping communities better prepare and respond to disasters.
