Photobook: Journey of Nepal's First Child Friendly Village
Plan International Nepal produced a photobook capturing the journey of Nepal's first child-friendly village - Tetariya - which scored a soaring 80% against the 39 child rights indicators set by the national government.
The status of a 'child-friendly village' can only be achieved when all children in the village attend school, child marriage practices are terminated, each child receives immunisations, births are being registered, and each house has a toilet.
In addition to the above achievements, the government has also started encouraging children to participate in their communities’ development planning.
Tetariya village is situated in eastern Nepal; it is a part of Plan International's target areas aimed to improve the livelihood of children through child-centred community development.
