The snow capped mountains with world’s highest peak Everest in the north to the widespread lowland plains in the south sandwiching the lush hilly region has made Nepal tremendously rich with different resources and whitewater is the biggest resource Nepal boasts on. However, having enormous resources and tremendous possibilities, the country is enlisted as world’s one of the poorest countries because of the longing political instability. Moreover, the recent quake and the present Indian blockade had made things more difficult for Nepal.
Why despite having immense possibilities, the children of Nepal are deprived of their birth rights? There are several reasons.

Secondly, annual natural calamities that strike Nepal in the form of landslides, flood and lightning also has isolated children from the parenthood abandoned to struggle for life. The recent quake also has left many kids without parents and solid support that has made Nepal a land of many abandoned kids. Moreover, the unethical relationship resulting birth of kids from unlawful couple has also has increased the number street kids every year. Almost 35 % of Nepal’s total population is between 1-14 years old and the number could be rising as many street kids abandoned in the streets of cities in Nepal do not count during any census.
