To Change Nepal into a modern healthy and a progressive philosophical country Radha paudel foundation has been making an effort  for the improvement of health , education , human right , empowerment and sanitation in remote areas in order to eradicate the  so called deep rooted traditions and cultures which has been violating the human right in name of tradition.

Health :Health doesn’t only indicate the state of physical condition  but also mental wellbeing. A person can never be dedicated if they are not conductive to good health.Therefore, RPF believes in the necessity of good health of an individual in order to meliorate the nation and lift the status of mass along with the nation.

Education: Education is fundamental human right. Across the world , 59 million children and 65 million adolescents are out of school. It not only affects on a person but hampers the whole family and country.Education is one of the vital key for women empowerment in the society.Education eradicates the discrimination against anyone.

Human right :( The right that cannot be taken away).Human right are moral principles that describes certain standards of human behaviour , and are regularly protected as legal rights of an individual . Human right is an internationally guranteed  fact that everyone is equal despite their religion , castes , gender and nationality.

Empowerment : Empowerment is the process of becoming more confident by gaining authority or power. Empowering women and youths to participate in different sectors is essential to build stronger society and improved life for communities. Gender empowerment is most especially in developing country like Nepal.

Water and sanitation : water is basic requirement. Clean drinking water , hygiene and sanitation plays an important role in maintaining good health . Maintaining sanitation especially in remote areas has been a challenge because of which people suffer from different disease. Therefore , sanitation management is also an important topic on which RPF has been working. And believes that small steps taken today enhances the future .
