Street children

Tags:

In this country most street children are between the age 6 and 19 years old or maybe increased of 20 years. They live in abandoned shop park or street itself. They are not taken care of by their parents or relatives or other protective guardians there are very much in Afghanistan. They are unfortunate because their parents sent them in out of house because those children go and do some work. That is good news for us that our country or our government said to people that they will collect the street children and they send their to school and other house for living. Every day they are begging cleaning cars selling something form magazine to chewing gun shining shoes and plastic packets in the street of Afghanistan.

Street children are a reality

Street children are a reality everywhere and are often neglected and ignored due to them being thought of as a burden. We do not respond to their needs or address their fate, rather we place the blame on them or their family. We need to start emphasizing a solution that involves education, housing, and a way to provide hope. Thanks for this entry, it is needed to open the eyes of so many, where they see lack of a solution to the homeless youth problem, leading to a negative affect on us all.

Everywhere Zainab

It is the same in our countries in Africa but it is so much dangerous in your country because of the unrest, may God open the eyes of our leaders to know that children are really the leaders of today......
Thanks for these posting and keep up the good job dear sister.
