Girls on the Street

by Rumbidzai Rurevo, Michael Bourdillon

Drawing on stories elicited from women and children living on the streets, particularly girls, this book considers why girls live their lives and work on the city streets. It discusses what happens to them when they do so, what mechanisms they adopt to cope, the support they receive, and how they adjust to other ways of life. It outlines common perceptions of street children, what may be done to improve their lot, and some existing intervention programmes.
