42 minutes

Description:

Forgotten Ones” touches on the harsh realities of the lives of street children of Nepal. 

The word in the Nepalese language for street-children is kaaThe. It is a word that expresses disgust and even hatred. No one likes the dirty gangs of glue-sniffing kids who roam the streets in search of edibles and kapaDi, anything that can be recycled and sold.

Often, the street kids are former abandoned children who have migrated from the villages to the city, but the sad circumstances of their lives are quickly compounded by issues such as survival by scavenging, police brutality, public hatred, gang pecking, ill-health, sexual exploitation, addiction to glue-sniffing, and so on.

Follow this faith-based mission agency as they intervene on their behalf to ensure they have access to food, education, shelter and activities, as well as career apprenticeship programs.
