Putting Child Sensitive Social Protection into Practice in Nepal

Child Sensitive Social Protection (CSSP) is a Save the Children initiative in South Asia aiming to reduce vulnerability and poverty of children by ensuring that social protection measures lead to meaningful investment in children. Currently the programme is being implemented in Bangladesh, India and Nepal.

Save the Children initiated the CSSP project in Sindhupalchowk district of Nepal. The project’s objective was to mitigate the negative effects of stress, shock and/or chronic poverty on children and to provide them with avenues and prospects to grow and develop in a safe and encouraging environment and to their best potential.

The CSSP project in Nepal is based on a set of interventions that aim to:

  • Improve access of poor and marginalised households and their children to available social protection programmes;
  • Sensitise parents/caregivers to invest in the education, health and nutrition of their children; and
  • Work at the national level to influence social protection policy and programmes to be child sensitive.
