Street Children

We see street children everywhere in Karachi and other urban areas of Pakistan. They usually sell flowers, cloths, books and copies, or polish boots or collect garbage and some survive on begging. Some people even look at them as petty criminals.

According to Asian Human Rights Commission, there are 1.2 million children on the streets of Pakistan's major cities and urban centers, constituting the country's largest and most ostracized social group.

The purpose of this section to share information, and to raise awareness on this issue and explore what can we do, or is being doing, in this regard.
