Consortium for Street Children

Equality for Street Children Starts Here

Thousands of children around the world live or work on the streets, and have their rights violated on a daily basis. We will work with governments and civil society to change the lives of street children together, by implementing four concrete steps to work towards making their rights a reality.

Situation

Almost every country in the world signed the Convention on the Rights of the Child to promise all children that their rights would be respected, protected, and fulfilled – such as seeing a doctor, having safety and security, and going to school. However, many countries have not fulfilled these promises to street children, who are often treated brutally or seen as a nuisance to be cleared away, with no opportunities to fulfill their potential.

Solution

Last year, we made history by working with the United Nations to publish clear guidelines on what needs to be done to protect street children, and the Big Give helped us raise awareness of this. Now we must turn these words in to action. Through our 4 Steps to Equality campaign, we will highlight the concrete steps governments must take for street children to lead safe and fulfilling lives, and bring together key actors to commit to making street children’s rights a reality.
