Prisoners Assistance Nepal
The children of female prisoners in Nepal are amongst the most vulnerable and socially excluded individuals. PA Nepal helps support the rehabilitation and integration of prisoners’ children, out of prisons and into the community after equipping them with self-sustaining life skills and education.
This relatively small non-government organisation targets disadvantaged children living in dangerous and vulnerable situations on the streets; living with their impoverished families and/or those required to work for a living. They help support access to appropriate educational opportunities, vocational training, and greater stability and security at home.
