Street Children in India

Street children in India are a result of rapid urbanisation and forced migration. There are estimated to be over 11 million children living and working on the streets of India today. These street children are segregated and unable to benefit from social security programmes and frequently suffer from rights violations such as sexual abuse, exploitation and violence due to their status and lack of legal documents. Our goal is to provide street children a platform to voice their opinions and ensure India’s street children are protected and their rights are realised.

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.
