Main problems faced by children in Nepal :

Almost half the population of Nepal lives below the poverty line and cannot fulfill their families’ needs

  • Poverty
  • more than 45% of children perish before the age of 5, and 21% of young Nepalese are underweight.
  • only 84% of Nepalese children attend school.
  • The legal age for marriage is 18 for girls and 21 for boys. However, this law is not always respected: 51% of girls are married before that age.

Nepal is one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world. Despite the international aid which keeps the country afloat, Nepalese children do not have access to all their rights. They must live their lives mired in poverty, malnutrition, violence, and other harmful circumstances.
