Since joining UNESCO in 1953, Nepal has co-operated with UNESCO in over 200 educational activities including the very successful ‘SETI' project on Education for Rural Development.

The villages of the Seti zone can only be reached on foot and are rarely visited. Inhabitants face a number of problems: food is limited, clean water rare, hygiene minimal, health care practically unavailable and education inadequate, especially for girls.

One of the major objectives of the Seti project was to introduce a campaign approach to tackle the problem of illiteracy through functional literacy and the provision of reading materials to make the adults aware of new ideas, skills, and knowledge that enable them to take direct action to improve the quality of their life.

The Seti project was supported by UNESCO, UNDP and UNICEF. Quite a number of other programmes such as the out-of-school programme, flexible schooling programme, women's literacy programme, community learning centre, had been successfully piloted under the Seti project.
