Children at risk
There are estimated 150 million children living or working on the streets worldwide.
Street children live and/or work on the streets. Many have come alone from rural areas to urban centers, many have left home because of family arguments. Others are sent out on the streets by their parents in order to make an income for their family.
All these children are at great risk of being abused and often travelers unwillingly and unknowingly increase their vulnerability. When you travel do your part and follow these ChildSafe Traveler Tips to help protect children.
