On the 12th of April, organisations around the world recognised International Day for Street Children: a special day acknowledging the strength and resilience of millions of street children around the world.
This special day is to celebrate and recognise the humanity, dignity and defiance of street children in the face of unimaginable hardships.
There are millions of children in the world whose lives are inextricably connected with public spaces: streets, buildings etc. They rely on the streets for survival and sustenance.
Often they are described in more negative terms such as beggars and thieves. labels that judge a child in this way disguise the fact that these vulnerable children are owed the care, protection and above all, respect due to all children
