Working with Children in Nepal


 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on World Vision operations

In support of public health recommendations outlined by the World Health Organization, some sponsorship program activities have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Activities may include sponsor queries and correspondence, sponsor visits, gift notifications and gift deliveries. These temporary suspensions may affect the information you receive from us in the coming weeks and months. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.
Nepal is one of the poorest and least-developed countries in Asia. Poor children in Nepal are among the country’s most vulnerable citizens, susceptible to abuse, child labour and neglect. The under-five mortality rate stands at approximately 30 deaths per 1,000 live births, compared with 5 deaths per 1,000 live births in Canada.

Malnutrition, infectious diseases and poor hygiene and sanitation affect the health of children. High absentee rates in school, particularly among girls, is also a concern. We work with families in vulnerable communities to build their resilience and provide opportunities to break the cycle of poverty.
