A HEALTHY START FOR CHILDREN IN NEPAL
Last year we started a new project in the Mackwanpur district in Nepal and by 2022 we will support more than 3.700 children 0-3 years old and their families.
The first 1000 days in a child’s life are vital in respect to nutrition and responsive care. With your help and support we can improve the health of babies, change attitudes regarding violence and create an environment that gives equal opportunities for boys and girls.
We educate health workers and community volunteers in early childhood care and development. They conduct training of parents, home visits and assist in community campaigns to improve the care of children and the respect of children’s rights.
We encourage both fathers and mothers to be active caretakers and to take part in education and trainings. We are happy to see that parents are excited about the project and eager to learn new skills and practice positive parenting.
We will follow the children and measure results over time – in regards to the general health situation and also in regards to the attitudes toward equality between boys and girls. We look forward to sharing the results with you.
Nature Planet improved education and health for an entire community in Nepal. The children and community now a new school, a health Clinique, a birthing center plus clean water and electricity.
Since 2009 Nature Planet rebuilt 16 primary schools in some of the poorest areas in Indonesia and thereby changed the life and future for thousands of children and their families.
