Poor children

Child poverty is a dire reality for millions of children around the world and it is estimated that 385 million children live in extreme poverty. The main causes are the lack of affordable housing, low-wage jobs, and lack of access to basic necessities.

Street children

Children across the world are left homeless and forced onto the streets to fend for themselves due to numerous reasons, primarily poverty, war, previous violence and abuse, exploitation, and desperation.

Children in urban areas

Malnutrition, inequity in health, unequal education opportunities, air pollution and vehicular traffic, violent and abusive environments are some of the grave issues that affect children living in urban areas.

Children in rural areas

The challenges faced by children in rural areas are linked to poverty, lack of access to education and transport, and violence. Living in rural communities could also present positive aspects, such as feelings of belonging to a closed community.
