FES Nepal Office

Formally established in Nepal on November 2, 1995, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Office is located in Sanepa, Lalitpur, headed by a Resident Representative.

It had been providing scholarship support to young Nepali students in the fields of political education, social science research, political dialogue, training on mass media and communication and general education even before its office was formally established in Nepal. Its activities in Nepal can be broadly classified as follows:

  • Encouragement to the growth of democratic institutions and instruments in order to improve their capability in the formation of a democratic political culture.
  • Promotion of dialogue on various issues concerning Nepal’s environment, decentralization and good governance, civic education, women and development, economic policies, foreign aid, social issues, consumer rights, role of NGOs and civil society and international co-operation.
  • Improvement of labour welfare, discussion of working conditions, training on industrial relations system, health and safety for workers, labour economics, women and informal sector, organization and management, leadership training, collective bargaining and responsibilities of workers.
