Caritas Nepal is a development/relief organization operating in Nepal since 1990 and is registered as an NGO (Non-Governmental Organization). It operates under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Church in Nepal as its social arm and is a member of Caritas Internationalis, the worldwide federation of Caritas agencies. Caritas is a Latin word which means “unlimited love and kindness towards all” and Caritas Nepal tries to spread this Love by working in solidarity with the poor, downtrodden and marginalized people of Nepal with a mission to empower them to overcome poverty and realize basic human rights and social justice, and to provide relief to those suffering from disasters and conflict. From its modest beginnings 20 years ago, Caritas Nepal has, with the support and encouragement of its partner and donor organizations, over the years established itself as a reputed player in the NGO sector reaching out to the underprivileged all over the country with wide-ranging programmes, projects and activities that aim to provide maximum benefit to the intended target groups. ... read more read more about CN
