Plan International Nepal

Plan International has been working in Nepal since 1978 to help marginalised children, families and communities access their rights to survival, protection and participation. 

At present, we run programmes in 23 districts, working with partners to strive for a just world where we are all equal.

Nepal remains a highly patriarchal society and minority groups are especially vulnerable. Girls’ and women’s access to social, economic and political power is limited and they are subject to harmful social norms and practices. 

We tackle the root causes of the challenges and inequalities that children and young girls face. We won’t stop until we are all equal.

Our priorities include:

  • Providing equal opportunities for girls and boys in their communities.
  • Reducing violence against girls and women and tackling discriminatory attitudes and practices to make communities free of child marriage, child trafficking and child labour. 
  • Promoting girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights. 
  • Strengthening the resilience of communities to natural disasters.
