Kidasha works to improve the wellbeing, development and opportunities of children living in crisis situations in chronic poverty in Nepal. Children who are beyond the reach of existing services and support, including children living in urban slums, street and working children and victims of sexual abuse and exploitation. We have been working in Nepal for 20 years, during which time we have developed unique expertise in supporting the most disadvantaged and marginalised children living in urban poverty.
Our small team in Nepal, works in partnership with local partners to develop and deliver quality projects which have a sustained impact for children and families at grassroots level. We actively engage with local government agencies and the wider community to improve mainstream services, change attitudes and reduce exclusion and discrimination. Our approach differs to that of other NGOs working overseas in that we aim to create lasting change for the most vulnerable children and not simply deliver short term benefits to as many as possible.
Together with our partners, we provide a range of services and support including: temporary shelter and rehabilitation support for street children and girl victims of sexual abuse; drop-in centres and outreach work with working children and their employers to reduce exploitation and abuse, remove younger children from labour situations and improve access to ‘on the job’ and vocational training opportunities; and support for ‘out of school’ children to access formal and informal education, including working with families to encourage parents to support their children’s education.
You have generously supported our shelter for sexual abused girls. Often visuals tell a stronger story than words ever can, I would therefore ask you to watch our short film which clearly documents the need for our unique shelter for sexually abused girls in Pokhara.
