PDF File Size: 823 KB | Download   
Nepal’s Child Protection Systems Mapping and Assessment was carried out by the Ministry of Women Children and Social Welfare (MoWCSW) and the Central Child Welfare Board(CCWB),1 in 2012 to highlight system-wide strengths, weaknesses and gaps in relation to international standards with the aim of guiding strategic actions to protect more children, in particular the most vulnerable, more efficiently and more effectively. Nepal’s child protection system has been governed by a broad range of laws, rules and policies aimed at preventing and responding to all forms of violence, exploitation and abuse against children. The system includes social welfare, security and justice, labour, health and education sectors. It is operated at national, district, village, ward and community levels with wide-ranging formal and informal mechanisms and services.Poverty, inequality, illiteracy, cultural rigidities, patriarchal mindset, political instability, and gender based violence are some of the reasons, which cause the frequent violation of children’s rights. Many Nepalese orphan children belonging to vulnerable ultra poor house-holds are compelled to be separated from their families and are living in child care homes. Moreover, many other are at risk of being abandoned because of social and economic reasons. There are significant numbers of children, who are living on the streets engaging in the worst forms of child labour, while many others are living in Child Correction Homes.
