INCLUDED is a charity that Charley spent time with in Kathmandu with a cause close to all of our hearts.
"Making lives better for migrants in cities"
INCLUDED is a nonprofit organization. We do essential work in difficult places, particularly the slums where migrants are crowded into the margins of big cities. Starting in Beijing, we are now also active in Shanghai, Kathmandu and Dhaka, with a goal of ten cities and a hundred community centers worldwide.
The need is great and it becomes greater every year. Why? Because every year more and more of the world’s population are becoming migrant city dwellers. Soon it will be billions of people. We and our affiliates provide practical help through community centers where migrant children and their families can get the essentials for a more inclusive life: education, advice, personal development and health.
These centers provide a network, within cities and between cities, for improving the work we do through best practice and hands-on experience. Partnerships, both practical and academic, are at the heart of our approach. We spread knowledge and awareness to governments, institutions, businesses and the public. Solutions become possible when people are pragmatically and emotionally included in our mission.
Currently, we serve over 8,000 migrants and invest 400,000 hours annually into them. We do this by bundling and delivering services for migrant communities in order to improve the migrants' access to city services.
