Nepal’s first Child Club in the name of JAGRITI Child Club, born in 1992 when there was no legal provision for registering child club in the Country. Then the Nepali legislative system was lacking on recognizing the rights of children to formally register the club as they were not entitled to have citizenship. A case was filed against such provision by the active members of JAGRITI at Nepal’s Supreme Court demanding their right to formally register the Child Club. After three years of debate, in 1998, the Court finally gave its verdict in favor of JAGRITI. Initially, established with seven children, JAGRITI was formed for the right and wellbeing of children. The decision of the Court has opened doors for Nepali children to get formal registration and today, we can see nearly about 25,000 child clubs all over the country.
