Hello everyone, my name is Biniyam Asrat. I am a medical student. I currently live in addis ababa,ethiopia. on the way to school and home i usually see street children begging strangers for money to buy food and clothes. some times they get and some times they dont even get for the whole day. Begging was key to the survival of street children. It supports them and their impoverished families. It’s a transient livelihood, and how long they stay as beggars is based on household income, gender and changing experiences.
Poverty is a major reason why children are forced to work on the streets. Family disintegration, abuse and neglect by parents, and the lack of social services are big factors.Across Ethiopia there are thousands of children living on the streets who everyday suffer hunger, violence, poverty and abuse. There are many reasons why children are forced to live on the streets – they may have been affected by HIV/AIDS, extreme poverty or family breakdown.
They may even have been trafficked or abused. so inorder to overcome this we need your help ,the first thing we do is that using the money we send the school and also We provide them with the food, medicine, clothing and hygiene which they desperately need.
so this campaign will help them to have food , clothes and will encourage children currently living on the streets to realize their potential and make a transition from the streets back to family and community life. Through access to our services children can begin to flourish, enabled to either return to school studies or pursue their own business. Developing this strong foundation, these children will have a better chance to break out of the cycle of poverty.
