Siem Reap- November 2015

Over half of the world’s children live in the Asian-Pacific region; hoards of street children live in this region. The use of the term street children is not a sociological classification for children “on” or “of” the street, but rather a linguistic type of communicative engagement that accounts for the variety of problems facing vulnerable children in urban cities. Characteristics of street children can include homelessness, separation from family, and poverty. As a result of economic desperation, these children are forced to work, which keeps them from going to school. On the street, they become more prone to exploitation and the risk of harm rises.

Street children are most evident in large cities. They work in occupations that bring them into contact with both the local residents and foreign tourists. The range of work includes begging, collecting rubbish for recycling, scavenging rubbish dumps, shoe shining, flower sales, magazine and newspaper sales, prostitution, or even petty theft or extortion. In some of these occupations, children work alone, although they are frequently under the control of adults, older street children, or gangs.

The street children of Asia are plentiful and they have a high rate of recidivism, which is a never ending cycle. The poverty drives unsavory ways to make money due to the desperation of families and the lack of opportunities. Street children can be a danger to others, but more importantly, a danger to themselves. Do not support organizations that use child labor because it enhances global poverty. The first Millennium Goal, to eradicate extreme poverty, requires addressing all demographics of the impoverished population. The street children of Asia are in need of aid, in order to improve their poverty-stricken lives
