Description: 

Among Asia’s poorest countries (HDI of 157 out of 187 countries), land-locked Nepal lacks universal access to health care, compulsory education and essential legal protections for children. Across the country, children continue to engage in activities that are dangerous to their health and well-being. At the same time, resources for interventions in health and education and for law enforcement are far below of what would be needed. As elsewhere in the developing world, data on the success of existing programs are often lacking and the quantity and the quality of the available information are major issues. This course will study interventions targeted at improving the quality of life of children at the example of Nepal focusing on three broad areas: (a) child health, (b) child work, and (c) availability and quality of education. After an introduction to the strategic planning and management of development programs, the students will be asked to select one of these three topic areas for further specialization. Participants in the course will learn though visits to international and local organizations and project sites, guest speakers, and discussions. They will work in small groups to design and execute a feasibility study for a prevention or intervention program in their selected area of specialization addressing a problem of local and international significance.
