“Street children” refers to a vulnerable population of children who live and/or work on the streets of urban areas, often lacking proper care and support from their families or communities. Here are some key points about street children:
Definition: Street children are typically defined as children who are living or working on the streets, often lacking a permanent home or family support. They may be engaged in various forms of work, such as begging, scavenging, or informal labor, to survive.
Vulnerability: Street children are highly vulnerable to a range of risks and challenges. They often face issues such as poverty, lack of access to basic needs like food, shelter, healthcare, and education, exposure to violence, abuse, exploitation, and discrimination.
Causes: There are multiple factors that contribute to the phenomenon of street children, including poverty, family breakdown, abuse, neglect, urbanization, migration, conflict, and other socio-economic and cultural factors. Street children may leave their homes due to various reasons, such as poverty, violence, abuse, or seeking better opportunities.
Health and well-being: Street children often face significant health challenges due to their living conditions, lack of access to healthcare, and exposure to hazards. They may suffer from malnutrition, physical and mental health issues, substance abuse, and may be at risk of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS.
Education: Street children often lack access to formal education. They may face barriers such as lack of documentation, discrimination, or financial constraints that prevent them from attending school. Lack of education can further perpetuate the cycle of poverty and limit their future opportunities.
Legal and social protection: Street children often face discrimination and are marginalized from mainstream society. They may be subjected to harassment, abuse, and exploitation, and their rights may be violated. Appropriate legal and social protection measures are needed to safeguard their rights and ensure their well-being.
Interventions: There are various interventions that can support street children, including outreach programs, shelters, healthcare services, education and vocational training, and family reintegration programs. These interventions should be holistic, taking into account the physical, emotional, social, and developmental needs of street children.
Advocacy and awareness: Raising awareness about the issues faced by street children and advocating for their rights is crucial. Advocacy efforts can lead to policy changes, increased funding, and improved services for street children at local, national, and international levels.
Human rights approach: Addressing the issue of street children requires a human rights-based approach, recognizing that street children are entitled to the same human rights as any other child, including the rights to survival, development, protection, and participation.
Multi-stakeholder approach: Addressing the complex issue of street children requires collaboration among multiple stakeholders, including governments, civil society organizations, international agencies, communities, and street children themselves. A coordinated approach involving various sectors and actors is necessary to effectively address the needs and rights of street children.
In conclusion, street children are a vulnerable population facing numerous challenges and risks. Appropriate interventions, advocacy, and a human rights-based approach are crucial to ensure their well-being and protect their rights.

Glimpse of life on the streets of India
Mother cooks for her child on the footpath as she is homeless and poor. More than 300000 children are believed to live on the streets of New Delhi.
India, officially the Republic of India (Bharat Ganrajya), is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world. Bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west; China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.
Poverty in India is widespread, with the nation estimated to have a third of the world’s poor. In 2010, the World Bank reported that 32.7% of all people in India fall below the international poverty line of US$ 1.25 per day (PPP) while 68.7% live on less than US$ 2 per day.
According to 2010 data from the United Nations Development Programme, an estimated 29.8% of Indians live below the country’s national poverty line. 2010 report by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) states that 8 Indian states have 421 million poor people. A 2013 UN report stated that a third of the worlds poorest people live in India.
According to a 2011 poverty Development Goals Report, as many as 320 million people in India and China are expected to come out of extreme poverty in the next four years, with India’s poverty rate projected to drop from 51% in 1990 to about 22% in 2015. The report also indicates that in Southern Asia, only India is on track to cut poverty by half by the 2015 target date.

One liner: Young girls sell tea at the Basantapur square of Kathmandu ,Nepal.
SYNOPSIS: In the bustle of Kathmandu Basantapur Square , school going girls work during their off time as tea sellers .In this slice of life documentary about five girls, we get a sense of their day to day life.
It took me quite some time to make this documentary (i.e july to November of 2017).
I felt guilty having to interrupt the tea sellers in their business hour, talking to them was difficult at first. They were always in a hurry looking for customers and their mothers had an eye on them. Later, we got along well and thus this film came into effect.

Ils étaient invisibles avant la gu**re dans les rues de Bagdad. Considérés comme des délinquants par le pouvoir, ils étaient regroupés dans de véritables prisons pour enfants aux noms trompeurs, comme “”Dar Rahme””, la maison du bonheur. Des enfants battus, mal nourris et souvent abusés par les policiers de l’ancien régime. Pour eux, le cauchemar continue aujourd’hui, mais cette fois en plein jour. On estime actuellement à 2000 le nombre d’enfants des rues à Bagdad. Un chiffre qui ne cesse d’augmenter. Des gamins livrés à eux-mêmes dans une ville où la violence est quasi permanente et où la d**gue est devenue leur quotidien. Samara Boustani avait suivi une de ses bandes d’enfants perdus pendant plusieurs semaines en 2004 . Aujourd’hui l’un d’entre eux s’en est sorti. Il a été engagé dans la police. Il a accepté de revenir sur les lieux de son errance mais aussi dans l’orphelinat où il a été battu et abusé pendant plusieurs années.

MACHT MIT bei unserem NEUEN FILM!!
Und unterstützt die KINDER DER KLEINEN WÖLFE auf PayPal!
„Kleine Wölfe“ ist das Porträt des
elf jährigen Sonu. Zusammen mit etwa zehn anderen
Kindern lebt er auf den Straßen von Kathmandu.
Der Film begleitet Sonu und sein Rudel einen Tag bei
ihrem routinierten Kampf ums Überleben in der
chaotischen Hauptstadt. Immer auf der Suche nach
Essen, leichtgläubigen Touristen, Drogen,
aber vor allem – so wie kleine Jungs nun einmal sind –
nach Spaß und Abenteuer.
Mit seiner starken Persönlichkeit und einer, ab der
ersten Minute, fesselnden Ausstrahlung, zieht der kleine
Junge jeden sofort in seinen Bann. Intime Aufnahmen
entführen den Zuschauer in Sonus harten Alltag, geprägt
von Hunger, Gewalt und Abhängigkeit und beschreiben
gleichzeitig die glücklichen, kindlichen Momente der Freiheit
auf der Strasse!

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
