Title: Study of Children in Children’s Homes in Nepal

 Abstract: In recent years, the number of children’s homes in urban areas has been increasing. This is particularly true in the Kathmandu Valley as children from outlying districts, displaced by the insurgency, flock to the capital at an alarming rate. Many of these children end up in children’s homes. This study assessed 335 children’s homes in 11 districts in Nepal. The study identified and prepared a list of children’s homes in these districts. The study also analyzes the trend in the number of children admitted to the homes over the past few years since the conflict has intensified.
