Read the piece written by one of the founder members of SSSK about  Understanding street children

If you follow the link to  http://www.gvnet.com/streetchildren/ you will find an enormous range of materials, although much of it was collected some ten years ago. 

The Railway Children site provides an excellent introduction  https://www.railwaychildren.org.uk/ 


Even though many of these articles are quite old, the issues haven’t really changed much and  the stories represent many of the ongoing realities of street life.  The articles and general studies include:

http://newint.org/features/1986/10/05/street/    Issue 164 Oct 1986  An introduction to the issues
