CPCS International

All the schools that had been closed due to Coronavirus have now reopened and, thanks to safe methods, the number of children coming to school is increasing. CPCS International conducted a program that aimed at providing schools with masks and sanitary equipment that most of them were missing. Furthermore, CPCS’ nurses are also encouraging public awareness of the current situation thanks to classes and services to children.

Health is very important to CPCS International. Indeed, the organization supported a general health checkup yesterday in the secondary school Belbari Morang. Moreover, these last days, they also gave classes about how to maintain personal hygiene in COVID-19 times and provided various schools with dignity kits, wound dressings, and betadine solution

Half-yearly progress report: January-June 2020

This report is published in the context of Covid-19.

This report aims to highlight our actions and progresses made since the beginning of the year. The pandemic has brought many challenges for our teams, and the children and families we support. For many children, this pandemic will change for ever their life. There are indeed not only endangered by the contagion of Covid-19 and the lack of medical equipment but also by all the repercussions that Covid-19 will have on many families: financial losses, job losses, death of caregivers…Many things lead children to end up on the streets and Covid-19 is multiplying those reasons.
This pandemic emphasizes vividly the necessity of our work. It is indeed in those contexts of extreme conditions that our actions of preventions and awareness regarding the life on the street make the most sense. However, although we are seeing significant progress in the families we work with in the place of children, our work is far from over. The difficulties have multiplied for families that are sometimes already in a bad position and it is also our duty to help them in every possible way. Thus, by taking the necessary precautions to protect our teams, we have not only followed up on the children, but also distributed relief packages, dignity kits and moral support.
It is our duty to multiply our efforts to forestall children of the street’s dangers. Our actions have been taken hand in hand with partner organisations and the three networks of which we are members: Dynamo International, Child Safe Alliance and Consortium for street children. Our partners and donors have been supporting our actions and we are very grateful for the additional help we have been able to receive. We would also like to highlight and applaud the extraordinary involvement of our team, who once again demonstrated their efficiency and dedication.
Although this report is an overview of our actions for the beginning of the year, we remain forward-looking and we reiterate the need for our future actions to be sustained as well.

Coronavirus_ Covid 19 _ Getting ready

Since January 2020 an epidemic of Coronavirus COVID-19 (ex 2019-nCoV) has spread from China to European countries and further afield.

In response to this pandemic, CPCS, and its team do their best to be ready in case of an emergency. This includes conducting awareness classes for the children about coronavirus and how to prevent the contagion but also organizing food stocks and cleaning products in case of a state emergency.

CPCS tries to do the best for the children of Nepal and around the world to keep them safe! We hope that our partners and everyone are well and safe.


The lack of access to sanitation in Nepal is striking. A total of 75% of the population is without access to sanitation, one of the highest proportions in Asia. Sanitation includes the use of latrine, personal hygiene, clean surrounding, proper disposal of solid and liquid wastages and hygienic behavior. Yet, proper sanitation is a necessary prerequisite for improvement in general health standards. Every day CPCS conducts actions towards greater hygiene knowledge and health such as awareness classes( nail care, hand washing, and body cleaning) and hygiene materials distribution. Recently in Belbari in the region of Morang, CPCS helped clean a school and toilet for better sanitation


Better Health Care Access is part of the prevention work of CPCS. The partners of the CPCS alliance ensure that medical care, emergency care, and information campaigns are easily accessible. Nurses and social workers perform fantastic work in the centers and schools in Morang, Sindhuli, Dolakha, and Kathmandu. More than 8,000 school children and their families have easy access to medical care. Here is a composition of the photos from last week (Supported by CPCS International).


Thirty years ago, on November 20, 1989, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the International Convention on the Rights of the Child. As a signatory, Nepal has incorporated the provisions of CRC in the Children’s Act 1992 as a domestic legal framework. However, despite the existence of rights, children in Nepal still suffer from poverty, homelessness, preventable diseases, unequal access to education and many more ills. CPCS is moving ahead every day to provide access to a proper upbringing to Nepalese children.


Nepal is one of many countries which are affected by climate change. Previously the high-altitude Himalayan country never had to worry about mosquitoes, unlike other Asian countries. However, due to climate change, Nepal became hospitable to disease-carrying mosquitoes.
Most recently, there has been an unprecedented outbreak of dengue, a disease transmitted by mosquitoes. Since August 2019, more than 9.000 people across Nepal have been diagnosed with dengue.
CPCS Alliance hosts several awareness-raising workshops to inform about the disease and how people can protect themselves.


According to a study carried out in the Kathmandu Valley among 745 children aged between 12 and 23 months, Nepalese children under the age of 2 are getting a quarter of their calories from junk food. These children are more likely to have inadequate levels of nutrients vital for growth and development such as protein, calcium, and vitamin A. Contrariwise, it increases their chances of getting heart diseases due to trans-fat and polyunsaturated fat. Thus, this has added a double burden of disease: while malnutrition and infectious diseases remain a great challenge, noncommunicable diseases are becoming more prevalent in Nepal.
To reverse the trend, CPCS organizes health awareness classes especially addressing the dangers of junk food and the necessity of having a healthy diet and lifestyle.


Due to its geographic location and alpine landscape, Nepal has five climatic zones, reaching from the tropical to the arctic zone within the Himalaya mountains. The geographical location not only enables a rich biodiversity but also introduces several dangers. As Nepal is located within two major tectonic plates, the country is highly prone to earthquakes. The recurring earthquakes have devastating consequences and present a significant hurdle to the economic development of Nepal.
CPCS hosts regular trainings in schools on safety protocols during earthquakes and provides important first aid training.


Official Visit (International Network of Street Workers) to a very nice and so well organized organization, Hong Kong PlayGround Association (HKPA). A very impressive work done here and since 1933 !!! Thanks, Lapman Wan for your welcoming and kindness! Further partnerships to be created soon, and maybe a common research to understand better children and youth in street situations in Asia (and maybe elsewhere !)
