In Nepal Human Practice works in Taplejung District in the Himalayas and Dhankuta District. Both districts are highly secluded and impoverished areas in Nepal.

Despite Nepal’s transition to democracy in the 1990s, according to the 2018 report produced by the Central Bureau of Statistics of Nepal and OPHI, 28.6% of Nepal’s population is still multidimensionally poor. Affected by many years of civil war and the fatal earthquakes in 2015, the Nepalese government is not capable of improving the quality of the school system alone.

According to the UNDP Human Development Report (2016) and the World Economic Outlook Database (2017) in Nepal only seven out of ten children enrolled in grade 1, reach grade 5 and more than half drop out of school before reaching secondary level. Only 43% of all adults have passed primary education and only 12% have passed secondary education; the average number of years in school is 4. The poor performing educational sector in Nepal restricts the social development of the country.

The poverty level and lack of local job opportunities in the poorest regions of Nepal results in many young men migrating to the Emirates to work 10-15 hours a day under inhumane conditions to support their families and girls being trafficked to India by their desperate families to survive.
