In an initial effort to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the CSO’s ability to meet their community’s needs, we launched a nationwide study on April 14, 2020. Nepal is well known for its vibrancy of civic space; a little over 54,000 NGOs are registered with Social Welfare Council (SWC), while the NGO Federation of Nepal stipulates the number of active NGOs to be around 7,000. Also, the number of profit not distributing companies stands at 1,782. Similarly, numerous community-based organizations that are not officially registered operate at the communities. We invited a total of 488 randomly sampled CSOs to participate in the study. A total of 235 organizations from 64 districts covering all seven provinces participated in the survey between April 14 to May 1. The respondents comprised of NGOs (91%), federations and associations (7%), and profit not distributing companies (2%). Participating organizations also covered a broad range of functional areas, from human rights to research and reconstruction.
