Street Children in Mexico

CSC Projects Supporting Street Children in Mexico

Increased levels of poverty, migration, and instability has increased the number of street children in Mexico as well as young people and families on the street, notably in major urban cities like Mexico City and Puebla. Street-connected children in Mexico may have experienced abandonment, neglect, abuse, violence, sexual exploitation, human trafficking, or substance addiction; and can be excluded from national and voluntary service provisions, Research and our own work has suggested this in turn can lead to street-connected children becoming more detached and less trusting and accepting of efforts to improve their lives.

Our Projects in Mexico

Keeping Street-Connected Children Safe

This project funds innovative direct-service delivery projects for street children across Asia and South America. Red Nose Day US also funds our global ‘4 Steps to Equality’ campaign, our ‘Digitally Connecting Street Children’ project with partners across the world, and our pioneering work in Uruguay, helping the government to adopt the General Comment No. 21 on Street Children.

Funded by Red Nose Day USA.

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.
