Aims to help children that are spending their lives under the most miserable conditions and lack even the most basic support. The traditional caste system, unfair social structures, wide-spread illiteracy and the decade-long armed conflict in Nepal are the root causes for the hopeless situation of many children in all parts of the country. Sixty percent of Nepal's total population is living below the poverty line, making even a basic school education very expensive - too expensive for many families. These children live a life in poverty and often have to work in child labor, earning very little if not nothing. Especially parentless street children and due to their rightless situation are missing even the most basic support and so depend on begging and thievery; also they never experience love and affection and have no opportunities for a better future.
