Child Workers in Nepal Concerned Centre (CWIN)

Kathmandu, Nepal

Established in 1987, CWIN (Child Workers in Nepal Concerned Center) is a leading non-governmental organisation in Nepal that helps build a national and international child rights movement to eliminate all forms of abuse, exploitation, and injustice against children. It uses a variety of approaches, including advocacy, emergency action, social mobilisation, alliance-building, and solidarity in action.


Since 2008, CWIN has been implementing Aflatoun through non-formal education for working children and children and youth in child care homes. CWIN implements the programme through a network of child care homes in Kathmandu, Panauti, Chitwan, and Biratnagar, among other areas, and also provides Aflatoun education to youth groups. Children and youth have begun savings clubs and enterprises like card-making. At present, CWIN provides technical assistance to UNICEF Nepal to implement the Aflateen program for youth in 16 districts. They aim to pilot with 200,000 youth over a 2-year period.
