Street children volunteer program design to rescue street children and preservation of children rights. Numbers of the street children are increasing in urban area. As there is no authorized date of street children in Nepal, there are 1000 street children are in Kathmandu. Specially, they live in Thamel, Darbarmarg, Ratnapark, Newroad, Sundhara, New Buspark, Gaushala, Chabahil, Kalanki and Koteshwor areas of Kathmandu. Except Kathmandu, there are 4000 street children who are living in Pokhara, Biratnagar, Dharan, Nepalgunj, Bhairawa and other cities. The children who are living in street are 90% boys and 10% girls. The children are coming in street due to more urbanization, migration and desire to get more pleasure, selfishness of the persons of urban and increasing unemployment. The children above eight years are living pitiable life in the street. They have come in street due to stepmother, household disputes, poverty, ignorance and lack of family awareness. No organization is operating strong program for the betterment of the street children. The nation has not drafted any program and policy for their betterment. It is extremely necessary to support the deprived street children who are suppressed by the family, parents and society. It is also found that the street children are born to boys and girls involved in prostitution. The boys and girls involved in prostitution left the child in the street in early age and also left after maturing by nourishing some years. The street children beg whole day and live where they found more money. Their numbers are increasing in tourist areas. As the tourists help them by providing food, clothes and money, they are attracted tourist areas. Since childhood, due to street life and bad habit, they use tobacco dust, cigarette, hent, hasis, alcohol, smell dendrite and use injection. Some are found affected by HIV. The street children who depend upon tourists during tourist season and after ending tourism season, they carry load, collect plastic from the help of dirt and search pieces of irons and sell and pass their life. Due to lack of food, resident and cleaning, street children are covered by bed hugs and louses upon whole body. As they sleep with dogs and their whelp in the street, they suffer from various diseases. It is necessary to rescue of the street children by volunteer for the preservation of children rights of the street children deprived from the child rights. Therefore, we have requested to rescue and support them. We have targeted not to deprive them from child rights in 21st century and ascertain their future not only rescuing them.
