About us

Entry Strategy/Location:
In the map of the Nepal, Karnali falls at last in Human Development Index (see below for details). It is one of the place of the world which has the shortest life expectancy;37 years in Mugu and in Karnali 46 year at birth. The female literacy of Karnali is only 10% where as national figure 34 % . The school drop out and repetition rate of the school going children are also very high (8-20% national figure, MOE, 2009) due to poor quality of education, insufficient facilities and other several contributing factors. In top of these data and information, Karnali is rich in deeply rooted bad superstitions, believes towards their lives. For instance, women and girls are using cowshed during their menstruation and child birth which is very dangerous practice for productive and healthy life of them as well as entire society.
