INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR STREET CHILDREN OBSERVED

INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR STREET CHILDREN OBSERVED

Context

International Day for Street Children was observed on April 12th. 

Details

  • The day gives a stage to the large numbers of kids in the city all throughout the world – and their champions – to stand up with the goal that their privileges can't be disregarded.
  • Observing the International Day for Street Children, children from shelters and pavement dwelling networks met up to take part in discussions, bunch conversations, street theatre and dance performances facilitated by Karunalaya, an NGO working with street children.

In 2018, CSC launched our 5-year ‘4 Steps to Equality’ campaign – a call to governments around the world to take four steps that will achieve equality for street children.

The 4 Steps to Equality is based on the UN General Comment on Children in Street Situations, breaking it into four actionable steps:

  • Commit to Equality
  • Protect Every Child
  • Provide Access to Services
  • Create Specialised Solutions
