Nepal is a developing country. In developing countries like Nepal, there will be several non-governmental organizations, so there are many in Nepal too. They are BASE, INSEC, NEFEJ, NLA, Health Net Nepal, Didibahini etc. These organizations have been working in various sectors of Nepal and thus providing a wide range of contribution for social reform.
Although they are working for people's betterment, they concentrate for earning. These social organizations get much more financial support from donor agencies. However, they do not work even a ten percent. Nominally they are working but for they own benefits and personal matters.
