Unlikely, the general expenditure of the government is being increased
day by day as burden to the Nepalese women. The tax paid by the
general public could not have been utilized in productive sectors. Mainly,
the economic parameters of the country are not in a favorable position
which determines the national economy and its status.

To measure the present economic crisis of the nation, the government's
attitude and that of people should be immediately changed from too much of a politics-mind to a development-mind.   Not surprisingly, in wake of growing poverty, violence and unemployment, educators, planners and developers have to make planning for economic crisis of the country.

Dr Pradhanang also said on the Nepali situation, " Nepal has the provision of general standard education, but it would not have taken any special step on appropriate education and employment for the children and women so far.  Nepal is a gender disparity suffered country where women have less access to educational and health facilities and social services. Women estimated to constitute 62.50 percent of the illiterate population of Nepal are - a serious concern.

Indeed, Nepal is not in front line on special steps to children and women for education and employment opportunities at all. However, it has started in order to uplift rural poor women, and illustrates an awareness for women's education and income generation programs that launched in some districts. 

Accordingly, Nepal has also followed UN Millennium Goal as common programs and obligations to educate and protect children and women and it also stressed to reduce poverty and provide job opportunities to women. Nepal has permitted to open nursery and child care centers and women’s colleges for a nice education, health and potential of employment opportunities to private sector. 

Thus, we need the economic revolution through the village tourism industry in close relation to agro-tourism basement. The growth of village tourism and agricultural sector generate a substantial surplus. This can help invest for accelerating development of other sectors of the economy.
