March 29, New Delhi: Save the Children released two research reports on street children: ‘Situation Analysis of Street Children in 5 Cities of India’ (Hyderabad, Kolkata, Patna, Lucknow and Mughalsarai) and ‘Policy Mapping Study on Street Children’. The reports were released by eminent civil society members, including Stuti Narain Kacker, Chairperson of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) at an event held at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi. Street children are ubiquitous but their lives continue to remain shrouded in mystery and little is known and understood about the conditions in which they live in our cities. With not much evidence being there to inform and influence the policy-makers, the interventions meant for street children have not shown the desired results. This is the gap our study aims to address.
