Promoting Children's Right to Parental Care in Nepal
  • Children living away from home are increasing and have reached more than one million number up to the age of 15. Similarly, institutional care homes in the cities like Kathmandu are also increasing and they are institutionalizing the ineligible children as well. The facilitating factors like rumours (private education, hostel facilities) and brokers who make money by bridging the rural children and their parents to institutional care homes are catalyst for unnecessary separation of the children from their family. The separation and institutionalization of children foster vulnerability to them. The risk for child separation in rural village is being increased because of the rumour (private education, hostel facilities) as well. Similar context in Jharlang, Reegaun, Gumdi, Darkha and Satyadevi VDCs of Dhading district has largely affected the children's rights to parental care. Realizing the need of action to reduce the unnecessary separation of the children from their family and initiatives to reintegrate the unnecessarily separated children, CWISH in Partnership with ATOS, Denmark has launched the project entitled, "Promoting Children's Rights to Parental Care" in the above mentioned 5 VDCs of Dhading district. This project funded by CISU is being implemented in Dhading since March 2016 to September 2017.
