Research on Street Children in Kenya
This study of the phenomenon of street children in Kenya gives a general historical background to the problem, followed by a brief survey of the scant literature available. The major part of the study includes a field survey of street children and assessment of the policies, programmes and laws affecting street children. The study sites included the urban centres of Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Narok and Kitui. The sample population included 634 street children, 32 parents of street children and 80 members of the general public. Interviews, questionnaires, observations and a study of secondary sources formed the methodology.
