Directory of Streetkids Resources

Home > Society > People > Generations and Age Groups > Youth > Streetkids

To be listed in this category, sites should at least in part be focused on streetkids or street children and contain information about street children, information about programs working with street children or both. There are separate categories in the directory for programs relating to child poverty, orphans and orphanages, child soldiers, child abuse, etc. Street children, by my definition, are children who live in the streets without any adult care or supervision. Since these number about 100 million there is not really much point in splitting hairs about "children of the street" "children in the street" "community children" "working children" If a submitted site relates to street children it will inevitably deal with some orphans, some working children, abused children, etc., but a site about orphans or an orphanage that has no direct reference to street children and no program focused on street children, does not qualify for inclusion in this category and should be submitted to the Orphans and Orphanages category. Similarly with sites whose main concern is child poverty. Unless there is a distinct component focused on street children the site should be submitted to the child poverty category. There are many poor children who are not street children. Street children have problems in common that are specific to their circumstances and work with street children has distinctive characteristics and challenges. This strict definition should not be interpreted as derogatory to sites and programs that are thereby excluded. It simply serves to make this category meaningful.
