Nepal is an astonishingly beautiful and diverse country, ranging from the well-known peaks of the Himalayan to the low-lying regions of the Terai. The Nepali people also foster a wealth of cultural diversity, with more than 70 languages or dialects and scores of traditional festivals celebrated throughout the year. The nation deserves to take pride in having a unique, and indeed very rich cultural and historical background. Nepal is also an under-developed country, with low rates of literacy, high rates of poverty and a persistent gender imbalance. Nepal is one of the most beautiful, culturally rich and welcoming country in the world. It is home to Mount Everest, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, and an astonishingly beautiful and diverse landscape. However, Nepal is among the poorest and least developed countries in the world with low rates of literacy, high rates of poverty and a persistent gender imbalance. The government is frequently unable to provide adequate education and health facilities throughout the country and both urban and rural areas are forced to live without necessary resources to promote growth and development of their communities:
- 42% of the population lives below the poverty line on less than $240 a year
- 42% of the population of Nepal is unemployed
- 51% illiteracy rate throughout Nepal
- 2.5 doctors are available for each 100,000 inhabitants
- 54% of Nepali children are malnourished
Vision Nepal seeks to address the issues of literacy, poverty and gender imbalance by partnering with institutions and organizations in Nepali communities and ensures that the progress made is sustainable. VN co-ordinates educational, health, environmental and income generating projects throughout economically poor areas of Nepal. These projects provide opportunities for national and international volunteers to assist in the development of Nepal. Vision Nepal also runs a cultural exchange program, Nepali language and cultural classes and a home stay program in Nepal.
