Kathmandu, June 3
To ensure that the most excluded girls in the country get best possible education, health and child protection services, Save the Children is launching its global campaign 'Every Last Child' in Nepal tomorrow.
The campaign will initially run from 2016 to 2018. In Nepal, the campaign will focus on helping girl children between 13 to 18 years stay in school, receive the best possible health care and reproductive services, and receive protection both at home and outside.
In the first phase, the campaign will run in four districts Saptari in the east, Kapilvastu in the west, and Achham and Bajura in the far west.
“We noticed that children left behind in Nepal in terms of education, health and protection were consistently girls,” Country Director of Save the Children Delailah Borja said in a statement issued here on Friday.
