Street Children in Nigeria

CSC Projects Supporting Street Children in Nigeria

Research suggests that street children in Nigeria exist primarily because of poverty in their families and communities. They also may have experienced family disintegration, maltreatment, violence, displacement, or been attracted to urban areas. The Islamic migrant system of Almajiri is also a predominant reason for street children in Nigeria. Many Almajiri face challenging living conditions and spend a portion of their time begging and hawking to survive. This can leave them vulnerable to exploitation, abuse, or recruitment into armed groups. See below for our work with our partners in Nigeria.
