The Child Rights Information Network shares the Durban Declaration
A call to action from the Street Child World Cup
Therecent release of the Durban Declaration, which reflects the main issues raised by street children around the world, highlights the importance of their right to be heard. If we are to understand why street children leave their homes, what abuse they experience, and what barriers prevent them from accessing public services such as education and health care, it is imperative that we listen to their experiences.
Please spread the word by forwarding the Durban Declaration to your MPs to send to the Department for International Development.
