The population in this part of Nepal is comprised partly of people from the hill area who migrated as a result of government instability, as well as those who came in hopes of better opportunity in farming. However, many times families are unable to find opportunity due to the caste system. The population is comprised of 39 different castes. This marginalizes many families who are left with no hope of moving beyond their circumstances. Many children are abandoned or forced to work and provide for their families, leaving them without an education or hope of breaking the poverty cycle. Countless more are abandoned and left highly vulnerable to other issues.
