Early Childhood Care & Development and Nutrition Project (2009 – 2011)


This project aimed to improve the physical, mental, and emotional development of under-5 children so they could grow healthily and achieve their full potential in life.

For this project, NPCS partnered with Divyaankur, who were carrying out early childhood care and development activities. The project was conducted in Lalitpur and Bhaktpur districts with funding from World Vision International Nepal.
