INTRODUCTION
 

Nepal is one of the poorest developing countries in the world. The average life expectancy is 60 years, and up to 48 percent of the population is illiterate. The government has taken steps to address the problem of illiteracy by introducing free education from grades 1 through 10 in public schools, as well as committing itself to giving free education up to the secondary level.

But in Nepal, not all children have the luxury of attending school so they do not experience the joys of learning. From primary school age, children are often considered old enough to work and to help support their family. Girls are not considered to be of value to their family as one day they will leave home to join their husband’s family, and so are often denied the benefits of an education.

In Nepal, many children suffer from malnutrition and disease, which affects their health for the rest of their lives. Intervention in early childhood through education supports building the strong foundation children need for later life and educates their parents on the emotional, nutritional, and educational needs of their children.

Nepalese children encounter the demoralizing effects of poverty combined with the social bombardment of globalization and tourism. As a result, the Nepalese identity is at risk of disintegrating, crippling Nepal as its people try to maneuver in today’s world.

Beside Children's work Faith Foundation Nepal has a vision for other NGOS/ INGOS to be involved in the process of national building where there are infrastructures available.
