Kidasha wants to enable socially and economically excluded children to fulfil their potential by improving their wellbeing, supporting their development and reducing the impact of discrimination and social injustice. Its staff in the UK and Nepal work with local partners to build quality projects with lasting effects for children and families at grassroots level.
Established in 1997, Kidasha empowers communities and implements projects on a local level. It strives to be different from other organisations in that it doesn’t aim to give short-term benefits to large numbers of children, but instead focusses on using innovative and tailored approaches to help the most at-risk children make real long-term changes in their lives.
