Situation

Street Children are denied their most basic rights, have no access to education, health care or social services are forced to exist at the very margin of the societies that neglect them. Exposed to exploitation,trafficking, extreme violence and sexual abuse, children gravitate to gangs, drugs and crime. Whatever the reason , disintegration of the family, rural migration or poverty for children forced to live on the streets is a living hell. Main problem - help them leave the street .

Solution

Provide proactive incentives and programmes that the children see as being cool and that they have helped develop. Sports , recreational, creative and cultural activities engage them and helps keep them healthy and off the street. The activities help development of interpersonal skills, physical and psychological well being and also provides a creative outlet helping children overcome low self esteem all crital to a child's development.
