A Brief History of the Organisation

Chandramukhi club is a non-profit non-Governmental organisation established in 2056 BS. It is situated in Chimadi of Sunsari. This organisation was established with the target and vision to include youths, intellectuals and social activists to uproot the various harmful traditional practices, problems and other anti-social activities within society.

It has also focused on early childhood development in partnership with Plan Nepal.
