I spend this weekend to create heatmap of NGOs affiliated with Social Welfare Council in Nepal between 2034-70 BS. I used the data from Social Welfare Council of Nepal. I wanted to see the concentration of these organizations in the map of Nepal and the result was surprising. Some insights:
- Largest number of NGOs are registered in Kathmandu District (12,048)
- Kathmandu Valley (Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur) alone account for 39% (14,627) of total NGOs
- Top 3 districts with NGOs: Kathmandu (12,408), Lalitpur (2123) and Dhanusa (913)
- Bottom 3 districts: Manang (14), Mustang (32) and Sankhuwasabha (62)
The heatmap looks as below. You can play with the interactive map and download the data by following this link.
Alternatively, you can click on each district or filter by district to get the number of NGOs from below:
