Pray for Children in Nepal

Description

Widespread poverty and lack of child protection laws mean that many Nepali children are mistreated and have few rights in society.

About 29 percent of Nepali children younger than 5 are underweight. About one in eight young men and one in five young women are illiterate. And due to widespread poverty and lack of adequate child protection laws, children may be mistreated and have few rights in society. World Vision helps Nepali adults improve their parenting skills and livelihoods to provide safe, stable home environments. World Vision also provides children with afterschool activities like music, sports, and vocational and leadership development.

Lord, touch the hearts of Nepal’s leaders to create and enforce laws and systems that protect and empower children. Bless parents with wisdom to guide their children and provide opportunities for nurturing as well as sustenance.
