We are a young school of social work with a great vision!! On 10th September 2010 we are five years old and steeping in to the 6th year with further commitment and enthusiasm. I invite you to explore our academic, research, training and networking programs in which our goal nurturing young social workers in Nepal and in South Asia reflects. Our alumni are leaders in their chosen fields of development.
Social Work is a young profession in Nepal but the rich global history of social work as a profession makes it an ideal profession for young and motivated people like you who wish to work with people and seek meaning in their careers. For social work in Nepal there are abundant opportunities and also countless challenges.
This is a profession in which you can choose to work with according to your interest and inspiration. As a graduating social worker you can work with all ages-from infants to elders-and in many different settings: schools, hospitals, shelter homes, old age homes, street children, differently able, mental health agencies, public housing, media, law firms, research and policy units, government and INGOs among many others. You can choose to work with children who have suffered domestic violence, abuse and serious trauma, or refugees and immigrants trying to make their way in a new culture. It is hard to find a profession with more opportunities and more rewards.
