Save the Children has embarked on a significant forward journey to continue to impact lives of children in street situation. Our effort on the ground seeks to address the biggest problem these children face – lack of identity.
Our study, 'Life on the Street', found that the biggest problem that children on the streets faced was that they had no form of legal identity document, neither access to rights and entitlements.
Denial of most basic rights - that we take for granted. From the right to go to school to access to clean drinking water, sanitation, and even schemes they could be entitled to. They remain on the margins, marginalised and vulnerable. This is the story of over 20 lakhs who live on the streets of India.
Our efforts on ground aims to change this reality. Our Commitment towards 'Making #TheInvisibles Visible' is an endeavor towards providing identity and claiming rights for children living in street situation.
It is our commitment to provide identity and access to rights to 2 lakh children living in street situations through a legal and valid Identity document by March 2020 in 10 cities of India.
