Street child is a term for a homeless childresiding primarily in the streets of a city (typically in a developing country). The exact definition of a street child is debatable due to the lack of precise categories. The term has largely been used in reference to children who live entirely in the streets, without adult supervision or care. They are often subject to abuse, neglect, exploitationor in extreme cases murder by "cleanup squads” hired by local businesses or police. In Western society such children are commonly treated as homeless children as opposed to criminals or solicitors.
Although there are no current official statistics on the magnitude of the problem of street children, the data collected from the number of cases of exposure to delinquency can be viewed as indicators of the magnitude of the problem. Generally, the problem of street children in Nepal cannot be related to a single cause or factor. Unlike the situation in other countries where a single cause such as extreme poverty, civil wars, family disruption or natural disasters might be the leading cause, the problem of street children in Nepal is multi-dimensional in which a combination of factors often leads to a single child ending up being on the street.
Various efforts had been made from governmental and non-governmental sectors to overcome this situation but the problem still persists. With a motto to contribute in this issue RC Tripureswor spent one day with Street children. The program was organized on the form of recreational activities, and it was conducted at Chobhar in Manjushree Park. In this program our team organized different games and skills lab. The target of this program was to build confidence on children which makes them able to speak openly about their issues and problems.
