Project Background:

Kalikot is one of the most remote areas of Nepal. Living conditions in rural areas of Kalikot are minimal. People hardly get access to basic needs that human need for living life as human. Among other basic needs, quality education is beyond the reach of children. Performance of children in early grades is very low. 61% people are literate in Kalikot. Only 45% children are enrolled in grade 1 after completing ECD classes (Repot 2071 B.S., DEO, Kalikot). Test pass rate of grade 3 and grade 5 students is 10.33% and 15.24% respectively (conducted by KIRDARC 2015).

Integrated Project is designed to promote child rights provided by government of Nepal. The project comprises of three sub themes; Education, Child Right Governance and Child Protection. Under Education, project aims to improve quality of basic education with focus on ensuring access of Children with Disability.

Key advocacy issues under this project are quality basic education, quality learning environments in schools, education right of children with disability, complaint response mechanisms, and child participation in planning process.
