Street Children

Lives of valor and vulnerability

By Poonam Sondhi Garg

This book is meant for those concerned about protecting and improving the lives of the street children and it includes information for research and educational purposes. While street children receive national and international notice, it has been focused largely on social, economic and health problems of the children - poverty, lack of education, AIDS, prostitution and substance abuse. This often neglected side of street children's lives has been the focus of this book and it is in this context that the subject of street child labour and its impact on children's development is investigated.
