Sustainable livelihood has become a common language among the entire cross-section of a society from the policy makers to the grass-root levels. A wide network of development practitioners has been established among thousands of NGOs, hundreds of INGOs, dozens of donors, private sectors, and government agencies.
With over a decade long experience in academic programs on development studies, the National College has accumulated tremendous experience through over 360 graduates and over 75 faculties, and has established partnerships with organizations within and outside the country. Every year, students and faculties gain field experience in various sectors of development. Similarly, the Nepal- Japan students exchange program for joint field research, and scholarship programs for the South Asian students under the aegis of South Asia Foundation are the examples of partnerships to mention.
