The number of Nepali NGOs is on the rise. However, except the total number of NGOs, the
information about the spatial distribution of these NGOs is rarely available. This descriptive
paper utilizes the data from the Social Welfare Council and Aid Management Platform of the
Ministry of Finance to explore the spatial distribution of NGOs and foreign aid in Nepal. It uses
descriptive statistics and visual graphs and charts to demonstrate the distribution. The study
finds that NGOs and foreign aid are agglomerated in province number three of Nepal. The paper
suggests that the uneven distribution of NGOs and aid leads to uneven realization of development
outcomes in Nepal. Registration, renewal, and procedures are extremely lengthy and tedious in
