Pyuthan, September 10, 2016: Bhingri Village Development Committee (VDC) of Pyuthan district has been declared as the second VDC in the country to implement Child Friendly Local Governance (CFLG).

“This is a huge win for children in the village,” said Minister of Federal Affairs and Local Development Shree Prasad Jabegu handing over a CFLG declaration certificate to the VDC Secretary Him Lal Pokharel.

Being declared a village with CFLG means that the VDC has fulfilled 39 of the criteria which make it friendlier and sensitive towards the needs of children.

Pragatinagar VDC of Nawalparasi district had been declared as the first child friendly VDC in Nepal on 24 December, 2013.
