Description

Child Sponsorship in Nepal is very much needed. Two-thirds of Nepal’s children are severely deprived and 40% live in absolute poverty. This is due to a decade-long civil war and political instability. Children are deprived of their basic right to education due to poverty, underdevelopment, mass illiteracy and socioeconomic problems. Socioeconomic problems are child labour, girl trafficking, bonded labour and discrimination against female children. Many families lack sufficient resources, both physical and social, making their children more vulnerable to illiteracy and poverty.

Major indicators

  • 33% of children live below the poverty line.
  • 40% of children are deprived of 2 out of 7 basic human needs eg. sanitation, information, shelter, water, food, education and health.
  • 7% of children defecate in open spaces.
  • 41% of rural children are underweight and 51% stunted growth through malnutrition.
  • Under-5 mortality rate is 65/1000 live births.
  • Infant mortality rate is 51/1000 live births.

Volunteer World Nepal dedicates itself to social development through supporting the family unit by providing social service resources and financial/material assistance, enabling the children to access their basic right of education.

Why Child Sponsorship Nepal

Your sponsorship will directly enable children to take advantage of alternative opportunities and break the cycle of oppression. Sponsoring a child from Nepal is a rewarding and heart-full experience. The sponsorship gives each child the chance to get the maximum level of school education that is available in Nepal. This gives them a better grounding in English and the main subjects required for college and further education. It is a real chance to make their future brighter.

Why sponsor through education

Education is a main priority to create long-term options for the future of the children. This sponsorship gives you the opportunity to really experience the difference you can make by helping one person. To have a life opportunity they would not otherwise have. It also gives the child the chance to have a friend who cares about their future and well-being. Imagine how it can feel to have someone thinking about you and your welfare; even if they are far away.
