Children In Street Situations: A Global Crisis

Every day, millions of children around the world find themselves living on the streets. These children are often victims of violence, exploitation, and neglect. They face a constant struggle for survival, and their future is often bleak.

The United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence Against Children has released a report on the situation of children in street situations. The report highlights the many challenges these children face, including:

  • Physical violence
  • Sexual violence
  • Exploitation
  • Neglect
  • Discrimination

The report also calls for action to protect children in street situations. This includes:

  • Investing in programs that prevent children from running away from home
  • Providing safe spaces for street children
  • Supporting programs that help street children reintegrate into society
