Around 7 million people in Nepal are living below the national poverty line. A quarter of the entire population does not have access to sufficient and adequate food. Due to low usage of improved farming techniques, Nepal’s agricultural productivity is among the lowest in South Asia. Malnutrition remains a serious obstacle to the growth and development of children. 7,900 children in Nepal die from diarrheal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation every year. The situation is further deteriorated by the damages due to the strong earthquakes in 2015 and the floods in 2017.
