Street Children in Malawi

CSC is committed to protecting street children’s rights in Malawi, where more than half of the country’s population is made up of children and youth. Estimates suggest there are around one million orphans in the country, caused by the country’s long-standing socio-economic problems and the ongoing impacts of the HIV/ AIDs pandemic. The resulting financial insecurity forces many rural children to urban areas in search of work, where they are vulnerable to trafficking and exploitation.

The Legal Atlas: Putting Street Children on the Map

Street children are one of the world’s most invisible populations, overlooked by governments, law and policymakers and many others in society. To address this, CSC and our partner Baker McKenzie created the Legal Atlas, to put information about laws affecting street children directly into their -and their advocates’ – hands.
