Framework agreement 2015-2018


Framework agreement 2015-2018

Our 2015-2018 action program aimed to improve the living conditions of Nepalese people in a sustainable way. All actions are aimed at providing access to education and training, both formal and non-formal, to poor and marginalized children, adolescents and women. In line with the 2012-2014 framework agreement, the strategy adopted in the 2015-2018 action program is "Education for All" divided into four components:


  • Access to education: Some children can not access normal education, for example because of a disability, illness or because their parents are in prison. By supporting these children, we give them access to basic education
    • Physical rehabilitation of children with disabilities, access to school education (action 001)
    • Access to medical care for the rural community, regular medical monitoring of schoolchildren and pupils (action 002)
    • Social rehabilitation, supervision and schooling of children of parents in prison (action 004)
    • Education of children affected / infected by HIV / AIDS (action 006)
    • Social rehabilitation of children of prisoners (action 017)
  • Support for primary and secondary education: we directly support the primary education of disadvantaged children. These projects include scholarships, as well as support for rural schools (teacher training, renovation of infrastructure if necessary).
    • Primary schooling of disadvantaged children, medical monitoring of schoolchildren (action 003)
    • Improvement of the school environment, capacity building and promotion of the rights of the child by radio (action 012)
    • School enrollment, improvement of the school environment, capacity building (action 014)
    • Improvement of the school environment and capacity building (action 015)
    • Improvement of Shree Rudrepipal High School Environment (Action 020)
  • Professional learning: Nepal is sorely lacking in technical skills. By training young people in trades, we offer them a future perspective in their country, and enable them to contribute to sustainable development in Nepal.
    • Construction of a hotel school to provide vocational training to disadvantaged young people (action 016)
    • Training program on agricultural techniques and capacity building for income-generating activities for disadvantaged young people in rural areas (action 018)
    • Vocational Training Program for Disadvantaged Youth, Baglung District (Action 019)
  • Adult Education: Some adults lack essential basic skills. This particularly impacts women when they are pushed out of their villages, for example when they have HIV. We provide them with a basic education (literacy, income generating activity, self-esteem).
    • Non-formal education of women living with HIV / AIDS, income-generating activities, health education (action 006)
    • Building local capacity through training rural communities in income-generating activities (action 014)


The total amount of the framework agreement was € 2,590,475 over 4 years.


Overall, the program was successful and the objectives set for the 4 years of the Framework Agreement were achieved for the majority of projects, with some adaptations to the situation on the ground . Most of the partnerships established will be pursued in the next framework agreement, with evolutions resulting from the lessons of the mid-term evaluation conducted in 2017.


However, in 2015, our association had to suspend the realization of projects 007 - Professional Learning Program for disadvantaged young people, in Pokhara and 008 - Strengthening the schooling of destitute children and orphans, in Sankhu, following internal management problems of local partners. Five new projects were therefore started during the framework agreement to compensate for the closure of the 007 and 008 projects, and three of them (016, 018 and 019) had the main objective of strengthening the "professional training" area our strategy that depended solely on project 007.
