Educating and empowering children and their families to help keep them together and free them from poverty, abuse and neglect

Thousands of children in Nepal continue to be separated from their families, as a result of trafficking or being enticed away with the promise of a better life and education. Over 16,000 children reside in orphanages or other similar institutions, of which around 80% are reportedly not orphans. Thousands more work as child labourer’s or are forced into early marriage. Many continue to be exploited, abused and denied of their basic rights. Poverty and a lack of education are root causes of these issues.

SCAI was established in 2005 to help address these issues and bring children in need a brighter future. Our projects are designed to strengthen and empower families, help break the poverty cycle and bring about lasting change. We do this through working in close partnership with local communities to identify and address the root causes of the issues using a holistic, sustainable model of support.
