Difficulties and Problems of Street Children

Pratibha [73] | A. Mathur | Ansu [45]

Abstract: A street child in India is someone for whom the street has become his or her habitual abode and/or source of livelihood, and who is inadequately protected, supervised, or directed by responsible adults. Mainly because of family conflict, they come to live on the streets and take on the full responsibilities of caring for themselves, including working to provide for and protecting themselves. Though street children do sometimes band together for greater security, they are often exploited by employers and the police. The purpose of this study was to assess the difficulties and problems of street children. A descriptive research design and cross sectional survey method was used to collect data from a total of 260 samples comprising of 130 boys and 130 girls from slums areas using self made questionnaire.
