All Children Have Rights
Street CHILDREN are CHILDREN first and Street CHILDREN second.
Why are children living & working on our streets?
How do children survive on the streets?
They survive by begging, washing cars, parking cars & commercial sex among other things.
What do they need?
They need education, re-habilitation and if possible re-unification with their families. They need to regain confidence in adults and in themselves, so that they can form relationships and lead constructive lives with hope for the future.
When you see a child begging –
1. Do NOT give the child money. This encourages him or her to stay on the street.
