Tough daily routine… to School

The kids in cities take it for granted, but their friends in remote parts of Nepal face numerous difficulties to go to school.


These high school students are from a Buddhaseen Village. They have to cross the river as seen in the photo above to reach their school and come back home in the evening the same way.

Traffic accidents in Nepal in rising trend

Analysis of 18 years of data starting from FY 049/050 to FY 066/067, shows that traffic accidents in Nepal is in rising trend. This demands something concrete to be done to improve traffic safety in Nepal


The data shows an alarming reality of commuters in Nepal that not much is done in improving traffic safety over these years. Concerned authorities should do something to reduce these accidents.

It’s not only the total number of accidents, serious accidents and fatality resulting from such accidents is also in increasing trend.


There was a little bit of decrease in accidents during 2061-063. But, that too might be attributed to the banda and strikes done almost every now and then. (Data by SI-Dipendra Pradad Sah, Metropolitan Traffic Police, Nepal)
