Nepal’s NGOs to be managed through one-door policy


KATHMANDU — Minister for Women, Children and Social Welfare Asha Koirala has said that the government has taken up a policy to organize the non-government organisations (NGOs) operating in the country through a one-door policy.

Speaking at a face-to-face organised by Reporters’ Club here today, Minister Koirala said the NGOs and INGOs will be regulated by amending the Social Welfare Act. “The Government is adopting strict measures as not all NGOs were found working in the interest of the society”, she said.

Stating that the Ministry has come up with a 37-point action plan for women, children and elderly citizens, she shared that efforts were also being made to increase the social security allowance for an elder citizen, people with disabilities and single women. RSS
