Nepal is nog altijd een van de armste landen ter wereld.

Hoewel de voedselzekerheid de afgelopen jaren is verbeterd, zitten naar schatting 4,6 miljoen mensen zonder voldoende voedsel. Volgens het Wereldvoedselprogramma heeft 36% van de kinderen onder de 5 jaar te kampen met groeiachterstand, 27% heeft ondergewicht en 10% lijdt aan vermagering als gevolg van ondervoeding. Er zijn naar schatting 250.000 daklozen en nog eens 2,8 miljoen mensen, waaronder veel kinderen, leven in sloppenwijken.
