“PDCN is committed on creating an economically and socially healthy Nepal and wider World, focusing on sports activities to make sustainable impact on education system, health sector and ultimately leading to poverty reduction.”

Life is not about competing with others, earning wealth or simply bringing food to the table, it’s far more wider and bigger then that. Mental and physical wellbeing and helping (people, nature or surrounding environment) are the core meaning of life.

My dream is to create an economically and socially healthy Nepal and wider world. I want to contribute to society with focus on the sports to make sustainable impact on education system and health sector. My aim is to educate children and youths not only in being an expert in their field, or get good grades or simply passing the exams, but at the same time have a good heart, be mentally and physically sound and good moral values. To achieve this, group of youth teamed up to establish Non-Government Organization name Play For Deprived Children Nepal (PDCN).

PDCN works both on humanitarian and development context. PDCN programs incorporate a unique methodology that uses sports and play as a tool for learning. We believe that when our kids are bright the world brightens with us. We want our kids to be awaken, be a leader, guide the world towards what is good and beautiful and for the benefit and happiness of the family, society, nation and world. We want to make individual kids an example of goodness and spread goodness all around. I believe this is how a nation can sustain in true lasting happiness.
