NEEDS Nepal, a non-profit, non-governmental organization, has been actively working in the social sector for the past 22 years since its establishment in 1999. Initially established as youth groups, the organization has been widely engaged in society for social transformation, good governance, and development. Over the years, NEEDS Nepal has implemented multiple programs aimed at empowering marginalized communities, promoting socio-economic development and social transformation, particularly for vulnerable groups such as children, women, persons with disabilities, Dalits, and Indigenous people in the entire districts of Sudurpaschim Province.
Through partnerships with various government and non-government agencies, NEEDS Nepal has been working on social awareness, good governance, safe migration, livelihood, disaster risk reduction, WASH, enterprises, and entrepreneurship programs within the prevailing policies and programs of the Government of Nepal, contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030. The organization is also a pioneer member of different networks and alliances at national, provincial, and district levels, such as Social Welfare Council (SWC), DPNet, NGO Federation, DRR portal, Health & WASH Cluster, and other sectoral alliances.
NEEDS Nepal has been undertaking massive campaigning, advocacy, policy dialogue, and other initiatives to generate evidence-based advocacy on the provincial and local levels and link them to the national level. With its wide range of programs and initiatives, partnerships, and advocacy efforts, NEEDS Nepal is helping to create a more just and equitable society in Nepal.
