Tharu Community Development Forum (TCDF) is a not for profit non government organization which was established in 2050 (B.S.) with the initiative of 15 local youths from Tharu Indigenous group. TCDF started to work when formal education was out of access for most of adults and children in remote areas of Nepal. So, at the beginning the initiatives of TCDF were oriented towards solely on literacy (especially Non Formal Education Programs). Later, based on analysis of need and situation of poorest people, TCDF started to work for living standard enhancement and empowerment of poorest in Bardiya District for holistic development. Yet, education and social awareness are main themes of TCDF's endeavors.
