Welcome to NGO Federation of Nepal

NGO Federation of Nepal (NFN) emerged as an umbrella organisation of NGOs in the aftermath of democratic political change and establishment of multiparty parliamentary system in 1990. Since its establishment in 1991, the NFN apart from defending NGOs’ autonomy has been fighting for promoting human rights, social justice and pro-poor development. Today, it has evolved as a leading civil society organisation in Nepal with 6,034 NGOs affiliated to it from across the country and has also received Special Consultative Status from UN Economic and Social Council.

 

NFN is an autonomous, independent and politically non-partisan organization, governed by its own constitution.

 

It has prepared and endorsed an NGO Code of Conduct (CoC) to guarantee the accountability and transparency of NGOs.The CoC has been widely disseminated to member NGOs and the implementation is regularly monitored to enhance the level of compliance.

 

NFN has 75 district chapters and 5 regional offices with regional resource centres for effective coordination among the members. Enhancing their capacity for effective leadership and advocacy is at the core of our activity. Besides, it has forged functional collaboration with several other federations towards building confederation for effective leadership to all rights movements. Consequently, NFN has been able to enhance its role, as a representative of civil society movement in Nepal
