BANEPA: Banepa Municipality in Kavre district has launched a protection program for orphans under the age of 18 years.

Under the scheme, a total of 12 children are given social security allowance on monthly basis as a part of a joint effort between Banepa Municipality and Bagmati Province Government.

Mayor of Banepa Laxmi Narsingh Bade said that each one has been given Rs 3,000 per month to support the children’s education and health care.

Member of Policy and Planning Commission of Bagmati Province Yamuna Kandel stated that social security allowance distribution scheme was initiated under the child protection program. She said that the operation of this program has witnessed challenges for lack of data about such children in other local governments in the Bagmati Province.

“We are thinking to bring such children on board by running programs after collecting data from ward-level after coordinating with the local levels in coming days,” she shared.

She also pledged support from the local and provincial governments to such children.
