Street Children in Pakistan

Estimates suggest that there are 1.5 million street children in Pakistan - a number which is increasing rapidly due to displacement, migration, extreme poverty, and rising numbers of runaway children forced to leave their homes after experiencing violence in the household, workplace and educational institutions. Once on the streets, these children are at greater risk of being drawn into situations of abuse, such as child labour, exploitation, trafficking, and arbitrary arrest. CSC is supporting hundreds of children in Pakistan, see below to find out more.

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.
