According to the National Centre for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC), 3,281 (8% of total estimate) children up to the age of 14 years that are estimated to be living with HIV in Nepal in 2013. They are facing social stigma and discrimination in everyday life whether it be school, playground, family or community. Many of them do not have proper health state which adds up to their weak psychological condition. Additionally, they do not have access to any support which might reduce their stigma.


The proposed project will provide computer training focusing on child's personal growth and also psycho-social support session based on art therapy. The skill development classes will encourage them to develop strong personality and boost their self esteem.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 40 CLHIV allowing them to rise out of stigma and discrimination they have been facing. This will provide for their secure future and independence. Even though they have HIV, they'll be able to utilize the skills effectively and contribute towards family, community as well as the country.
