But in Nepal, due to hierarchal social structure, caste based discrimination do exists since 300 years ago. This discrimination led to the segregation of Nepali Society and its people into higher caste and lower caste. While higher caste people occupies the position in decision making and high standard professional jobs, Dalits, who are termed as lower caste people, are socially, politically and economically excluded in the name of untouchable. Not only they are denied of opportunities, they are compelled to live miserable life due to poverty and illiteracy.
Hence, Badi Girl, sub group within Dalit community, since their early childhood, are forced to prostitution as the means of survival and to support their impoverished families. Many young girls, including the children, in this context, also get trafficked each year. Similarly there exists an other group of people in Nepal known as “Chepang” In this era of science and technology where the man has occupied the moon and outer space, Chepangs are still living in jungle like a primitive man detached from all the human advancement and progress. They are one of the indigenous tribe inhabiting in the remote and sparse contours, outback and rolling precipices of the districts of Makwanpur, Chitwan, Gorkha and Dhading unknown to the importance of nutrition, education, good health. They have often been characterized as the poorest of Nepal’s poor whose situation is miserable. Less than 15 percent Chepangs are literates and almost 90 percent of them are leading life under utter poverty
Against this backdrop, Light House Foundation was established as non- governmental, nonprofi t humanitarian organization seeking to ensure the minimum standard of living for the children who are destitute, socially excluded, vulnerable and whose existence has been jeopardized by sexual abuse, violence, trafficking and conflict. To this end, it started to operate seven child care house with 700 children in different parts of Nepal, primarily, Kathmandu, Surkhet and Hetauda. Within a decade of its functioning, LHFN has come to far with the success story of integration of around 450 children in the society. Currently LHFN is having 2 hostels in Kathmandu, 250 students and 30 staffs.
