Youth Action Nepal (YoAC) came into existence in the year 2003 with the initiation of a few university students concerned with the vulnerable social, economic and political situation of the country, especially in the context of the armed conflict. YoAC is therefore a youth led and youth focused organization dedicated to human development of youths for human rights protection and promotion of Nepali people at large, and the transformation of Nepali society. Since its establishment, it has been carrying out research and study; training and education; and lobby and advocacy campaigns to address the burning sociopolitical issues facing the country.

What peoples says about Youth Action Nepal.
न बाउ, न आमा, न छोरा न छोरी म जस्ती एक्ली बेशाहारा को भुकम्प ले घर पनि लगिदियो एस्तो बेला मा आएर मलाई साहारा दिनुभयो । यस्तोबेला सहयोग गर्ने लाई भगवान भनिन्छ । तपाईंहरु को सधैं भलो होस् ।
