Nepal & PHISO

Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is landlocked and located in South Asia. With an area of 147,181 square kilometres (56,827 sq mi) and a population of approximately 27 million, Nepal is the World's 93rd largest country by landmass and the 41st most populous country.
Nepal is country of the Himalayas and bordered with China to the north and India to the south, east, and west. Kathmandu is the nation's capital city and largest metropolis. The mountainous north of Nepal has eight of the World's ten tallest mountains, including the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest. More than 1400 peaks over 6,000 metres above the sea level are located in Nepal. The southern Terai region is fertile, flat and home of One Horn Rhinoceros and Royal Bengal Tiger. Nepal is truly a land of eternal attraction, colourful cultures, ancient history and amazing people. Nepal is one of the most beautiful countries in the World in terms of natural beauty with hundreds of miles of forested area, rivers and streams, lush green valleys and hillside villages filled with terraced fields. It is the home of Mt. Everest, Buddha and Sherpas! With a population of nearly thirty million, Nepal is home to many races and tribes. The main characteristic of Nepali people is their simplicity and hospitality. Nepalese are simple in every way. Their means of livelihood and way of life are very simple. They are very friendly and cooperative.
Despite being such a beautiful country with amazing people, Nepal is one of the least developed countries with the low-income economy, ranking 145th of 187 countries on the Human Development Index (HDI) in 2014. It continues to struggle with high levels of hunger, poverty and natural disaster. Nepal is amongst the five poorest countries of the World, with about one-quarter of its population living below the poverty line. Nepal is heavily dependent on remittances, which amount to as much as 30% of GDP. More than four million Nepalese youth work overseas due to lack of employment opportunity in the country. Agriculture provides the livelihood for more than 70% of the population and accounting for one-third of the GDP.
An isolated, agrarian society until the mid-20th century, Nepal entered the modern era in 1951 without schools, hospitals, roads, telecommunications, electric power, industry, or civil service. Today, poverty is mostly a rural phenomenon, and the largest concentration of rural poor is in the Hills, comprising households with either no land or tiny plots of non-irrigated land on the hillsides. Most part of the country is roadless, so the majority of the population do not have access to the central market and facilities. Despite these challenges, the country has been making steady progress, with the government making a commitment to graduate the nation from least developed country status by 2022.
The country suffered by the Maoist insurgency for the period 1996 to 2006 which began in the hill districts of western Nepal. The Civil War claimed more than 17,000 lives. 
On 1 June 2001, the country suffered from a massacre in the royal palace, which took the life of King Birendra, Queen Aiswarya, and seven other members of the royal family. Surviving only the King Birendra's brother, Gyanendra and his family.
On 28 May 2008, the newly elected Constituent Assembly declared Nepal the Federal Democratic Republic, abolishing the 240-year-old monarchy system in the country. Nepal today has a President as Head of State and a Prime Minister heading the government.
However, despite this unfavourable situation, NGOs have played a significant role in community/regional development and education sector of the rural areas of Nepal, especially those employing local people, are still implementing development activities even in continued conflict areas. But most of the NGOs are centralised in major cities like Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, and the service providing activities are low profile.
Peekye Hill Social organisation is one of the NGOs directly working in the rural areas of Nepal, making the active presence of local peoples of the area.
