Lives With: Brother

I and my 9-year old brother have been victims of extreme poverty and are looking forward to joining a school which loves children and provides extra care for special cases such as ours. Most of our childhood has been wasted in sniffing dendrite and getting high. We sometimes smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol with the money earned by begging in buses travelling on the highway.

The girl who taught us how to get high with dendrite-sniffing is in jail now because she killed a young kid with a rod forced into the young guy’s neck.

Our father raped a minor girl a few years back and has been jailed in Biratnagar. Our mother has been out of touch for a long time and we don’t even have hopes that she will be helping with our accommodation, food and education.

Lives With: With Mother

I have one sister who is 7 years old and stays with my mother. I had a small brother who died at birth. My mother is an alcoholic and has no money to go to the hospital and it’s simply because of negligence that she isn’t healthy at all. I don’t like to go to school because I was harassed by the other boys and I don’t like to stay with my mother as there is nothing to eat. My father doesn’t do anything; previously, he used to work as a laborer in big buildings for construction purposes and is another drunkard. People do not trust him as he is always drunk and not reliable.

I started to live on the streets 2 years back. I am happy and satisfied in the streets, where at least we get to manage for food anyhow; I have 7 friends with me now. We were more than 15 last year, but I don’t know where they vanished slowly.
