Education and livelihoods for a dignified life in Nepal




Empowering disadvantaged youth

In Nepal, 770,000 children aged 5-12 are not in school and 22% of children are not benefiting from early childhood education and development.

With the support of NGO partners and the Nepalese government, Aide et Action developed an emergency response and ensured the continuation of children's learning through radio classes, as well as the distribution of printed learning and working materials. With the support of teachers and community volunteers, a child-friendly teaching method was developed.
