If you had the power and resources, how would you deal with the issue of street children especially in the big cities?
Street children have been robbed off their rights to healthcare, housing, clothing, education and and not importantly a loving family.
There’s more issues that arise when we keep street children on the streets… for example, drug abuse, prostitution, organisers crime and more…
Some of them innocently beg for cash while others opt to steal when begging doesn’t work.
Recently, there’s been organised crime rings which use these children. For example;
If you find any child crying on the road showing his/her address on a piece of paper and asking you to take him/her to that address, and you’ve assessed the need to help, take that child to the Police Station and not the address.
It is a new way of gang Stealing, Raping & Kidnapping.
What would be your recommendation to fix this issue so once and for all?
