About us

4-H is the largest youth campaign in the world with its active engagement in youth empowerment and agricultural interventions. The 4-H is registered in 72 countries, including Nepal. It was registered in Nepal in 2014. The first Global 4 H Network Summit was held in South Korea in 2014, and the second summit was held in Canada in 2017.

The 4-H Nepal has its interventions in youth, youth entrepreneurship, agriculture, policy advocacy on youth empowerment, democracy, and good governance. Of the four ‘H’s that are linked to 4-H, the first H indicates head (managing and thinking skills), the second H indicates heart (relating and caring skills), the third H indicates hands (working and giving skills), and the fourth H indicates health (living and being skilled).

The 4-H Nepal advocates for youth leadership, youth life-skill development, and the participation of youth in strengthening democracy, good governance, peace, and sustainable development. 4-H Nepal interventions contribute to ensuring the participation of youth and people from marginalized and vulnerable communities in the mainstream of development. 4-H Nepal helps youth learn and grow through the national process of development, which helps in building competence, confidence, connection, compassion, and character in youth. Likewise, the 4-H Nepal encourages youth to participate in activities that emphasize the 4-H’s “learning by doing” philosophy of youth development.

The 4-H Nepal gives its special focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their implementation in Nepal.

The 4-H Nepal gives priority to Goal No.
