Nepal is categorised as a developing country. The country has been facing many challenges from few decades. The ten year long civil war, the heart-breaking earthquake and political instability has been huge obstacles for the development of the country. There is a huge gap between poor and rich. Many children have lost their parents in conflict and natural disasters like earthquake, floods and landslides. This has lead to an increment in child trafficking and child rights violation. The city of Kathmandu has become the destination for survivors. CESP is Samdan’s educational support (scholarship) program. Currently the program supports 53 children in Nepal with their education and health.
Parents want to provide good education, healthy food and a secure life for their children, but not everyone’s economic status support it. The income-gap means that while some are spending their lives in luxury, others struggling to meet their basic needs. Corruption, social discrimination, geographical diversities are other factors of poverty issues. Children are especially vulnerable to these circumstances, and for some of them the future seems dark and uncertain.
CESP is focused especially on the educational part of children’s lives. CESP believes that supporting the educational need is a way to support them to all needs.
