A survey conducted a few years back estimated the number of homeless children to be around fifty thousand a fifth of which were girls. Currently the number is way more. There are a number of reasons why these children end up on the street. Many of them leave their poverty-stricken homes and come to Delhi in search of opportunities and a better life. Some run away from violent and irresponsible guardians while others have been known to be separated from their families without a way to get back. It is quite a sorry sight to see the misery of these children working earning their livelihoods and living a life of distress and neglect. You will currently find children everywhere on the streets of Delhi NCR - selling something at traffic signals begging picking rags or simply putting up with their families in slum dwellings. This situation creates serious doubts about the developed India we had all envisioned. A Life of Hardships The troubles of street children on the streets of Delhi are manifold. Convert webpages to pdf online with PDFmyURL slide 3: Apart from a difficult life which is often shelterless and treacherous children also have to face abuse and cruelty. Young children are mistreated by adults and forced to work beg and commit crimes. They are also abused physically verbally and emotionally. More than half the population of street children have been reported to have faced abuse and violence in some form. Most children don’t have ID cards or certificates that deprive them of government schemes that provide basic necessities to minors. India is considered to have the largest population of vulnerable street children in the world. Protection and Rehabilitation of Street Children Many NGOs have started working for these unfortunate children. They work closely with authorities and police to provide much needed relief to these children in different forms. They provide shelter education medical checkups and most importantly love and care. Salaam Baalak Trust is one such NGO that has been working tirelessly over the years for the welfare of the street children in India. Not only do they provide the basic necessities for a healthy life they educate and train the children in various fields that empowers them to build a better future for themselves. As responsible and educated Indian citizens it is our moral responsibility to help these kids lead a better enriching life. We can do that directly or by volunteering and donating to NGOs like Salaam Baalak Trust. Even a small contribution can go a long way to improve the life of an underprivileged child. Let’s join hands for this cause and aim to build a better India where we work towards securing our future which is children. Visit the Salaam Baalak Trust website for more details on how you can help and contribute.
