Ethiopia is bounded on the Northeast by Eritrea and Djibouti , on the East and southeast by Somalia , on the Southwest by Kenya , and on the West and Northwest by Sudan . The country is divided into nine regions, one for each of its main ethnic groups. Addis Ababa is Ethiopia ’s capital and largest city. Ethiopia with an area of 1.13 million square kilometers .Is the second population country in sub-Saharan Africa .Its population in July 2003 ,which is projected (medium variant )from the base population of the 1994 census results ,the most recent in the country ,was 69,127,000 with sex ratio of almost 1.1 Ethiopia ,predominantly an agrarian country with subsistence production and traditional mode of farming prevailing is one of the least developed country in the world. One distinguishing feature of the least developed country ,which Ethiopia also shares ,is the high fertility rate resulting in a broad-based population pyramid .In Ethiopia according to the preliminary result of heirs first ever Demographic and health survey (DHS-2000),the reported total fertility rate at country level stands at 5.9 .The prevalence of such a high fertility rate ,undoubtedly ,has several repercussions both on the development of the country in general and the survival and development of children in particular the proportion of children below 18 years of age as defined by the convention on the rights of the child(CRC)in Ethiopia account for more than half ,52.4 % to be exact ,according to the 1994 National population is coupled with the very high incidence of poverty ,indicated as 45 % of the population living below the absolute poverty line estimated for the country in a recent government report M’EDAC,1999 it is easy to imagine the difficult situations in which the vast majority of children in this country are obliged to live in ,provided they do not die at infancy ,other basic socio-economy and demographic indicators do not neither show a glimpse for optimism. The overall literacy rate for the country as a whole as well as school enrollment rates is small even when compared with sub-Saharan situations. The 2000 welfare monitoring ,conducted by the central statistical authority (CSA) ,indicates that 70.8% of Ethiopia’s population aged 10 years and over were non-literate during the time with marked gender and rural /urban disparity (60.3%of males as compared to 80.6%of females and 30.1 %of urban as compared to 78.3% of rural populations ) Addis Ababa , capital and largest city of Ethiopia , the country's commercial, manufacturing, and cultural center. It is situated in central Ethiopia at an elevation of about 2440 m (about 8000 ft) above sea level on a plateau that is crossed by numerous streams and surrounded by hills. It is the focus of a highway network, the site of an International airport, and the terminus of a railroad to the Gulf of Aden port of Djibouti , capital of the neighboring state of Djibouti . In the city are printing industries and manufactures include footwear, clothing, asbestos and metal products, processed foods, cement, and plywood. Flourishing handicraft industries produce leather, metal, and textile goods, which are traded along with the regional agricultural produce, such as coffee, tobacco, and dairy items, in the vast open-air market known as the Mercato, on the western side of the city. Addis Ababa is a sprawling city, well wooded, especially with eucalyptus trees, and crossed by broad avenues. Modern, multi storied buildings sit side by side with traditional one- and two-storied structures and open spaces. Its high elevation gives the city a mild, pleasant climate. The city is the seat of Addis Ababa University (1950), schools of music and art, and several research institutes. As headquarters of the African Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa , the city is the scene of many international conferences. Of note in the city are the octagon-shaped Saint George Coptic Christian Cathedral (1896), the modern Africa Hall with its dramatic stained-glass windows, and the Menelik II Palace, as well as several museums with collections of art, ethnology, and archeology. The modern city was founded in 1887 at the site of a hot springs by Emperor Menelik II and given the name Addis Ababa , Amharic for “new flower.” It became the national capital in 1889. The city's somewhat haphazard and unplanned growth was spurred by the completion in 1917 of the railroad to Djibouti . From 1936 to 1941 Addis Ababa was occupied by the Italians, who made it the capital of Italian East Africa and instituted extensive modernization projects. Between 1960 and 1970 the population of the city nearly doubled, and new light manufacturing industries were established. In 1963 the charter establishing the Organization of African Unity was signed here Infrastructure such us telephone, electricity and postal service are wildly operating .There are more than 100 Embassy, UN office, Africa union, Humanitarian and religion institution, more than 200 NGOs are based in the capital city.
The migration of rural adults, youth and children to the town makes the town crowded, which develops to urban destitute and poor .The fleeing of the rural poor to the town leads the life of urban dwellers to extreme poverty. Poor to poor forms double poor. Particularly the adolescents and children migrate from rural areas and born in the town are unemployed. Many of them have no access to education .Since many families are poor they are unable to send there children to school and keep their health .Even the families used their children as income source .The children are forced to subside their family’s income. To earn day-to-day life children are engaged in petty trade such us selling of sugarcane, roosted grains, candies, and fruits. Some of them live with there poor family and earn their life from the street, we call them street children .The other groups are children of the street .This group of street children goes out of their family both from the rural family and the town or born on the street from their street mothers. Children of the street live on the street and earn from the street. These street children are poverty stricken .They don’t have permanent source of income they are casual workers. They work what ever they found, the female street children grown to prostitute, while the male grown to criminal’s thefts, vagabonds, and addicts. Sexual abuse is daily life of street children, so they easily contaminated by STD even HIV/AIDS. The street children have no shelter to protect themselves from heat and cold .Pneumonia, and tracheal infection is common. Since they conduct UN protected sex both commercial and rapid they usually suffer from reproductive health. They don’t have permanent income they eat and drink what ever they find, so they live undernourished and malnourished. They live where ever they found under tree, on the road, bus station, under veranda in extremely unsanitary condition, they don’t have access to personal hygiene, they use any where to discharge their urine and feces, they are even dangerous for sanitary condition of the town. They are exposed to any attack, violation and risk life, they are beaten, tortured, sexual abuse among female .As the result female chider prostitute are abundant. Since they conduct sexual action when ever, where ever and what ever cost they are called Mobil, rapid and discount sexual workers. Majority of male street children are unemployed they engaged in crimes drug abuse and anti social behavior. The community has negative attitude towards the street children ,it consider them as down thrown ,anti social and criminals ,the street hide and segregate themselves

When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed
