RASHFA AID FOUNDATION AFRICA SURVEY OF STREET CHILDREN IN GHANA

Content:Who are street children? Why do street children take to the streets? The problems of the street children .How do street children survive?

 

Street children are the casualties of economic growth, war, poverty, loss of tradition values,Domestic violence, physical and mental abuse .Every street child has reason for being on the streets. While some children are lured by the promise of excitement and freedom, the majority are pushed onto the street by desperation and a realization that they have nowhere else to go. In many countries ,street children are names after their man survival activities, For example kayayo in Ghana, street gangs (Kobolo), prostitutes (ashawo).What is obvious is that street children are poverty-stricken and their needs and problem are result of wanting to meet basic needs for survival. Street children go through the struggle of providing themselves with basic things such as food, shelter, health and clothing. Providing targeted interventions that meet the needs of street children requires an understanding of who they, what they need, what they do and how they can be identified. This survey presents features of street children.

 

 

Who are street children?Street child may be:• A “child of the streets”, having no home but streets. The family may have abandoned him or her or may have no family members left alive, due to conflicts example like in the Northern region,. Such a child has to struggle for survival and might move from friend to friend, or live in the shelters such as abandoned buildings.• A child “on the street” ,visiting his or her family regularly. The child might even return every night to sleep at home, but spends most of the days and some nights on the street because of poverty, overcrowding, sexual or physical abuse at home.• A part of street family. Some children in Ghana live on the sidewalks or city squares with the rest of their families. Families displaced due to poverty, natural disasters, or wars may be forced to live on the streets. They move their possessions from place to place when necessary. often the children in these “street families” work on the streets with other members of their family

 

The typical Age and gender of street child.The typical age of street child varies from place to place in Africa. In Ghana children as young as eight live completely on their own .In some developed countries ,street children are usually over the age of twelve. the proportion of girls among the street children is reported to less than 40 % in Ghana and 50 % in some African countries .there are number of reasons why there are fewer street girls in Ghana.• Fewer girls are abandoned in Ghana by their families. Girls are often socialized taught by their families and culture) to be submissive and caring and therefore they tend top have fewer behavioral problems as compared to boys. Since girls have fewer behavioural problems in Ghana, they have fewer conflicts with families and do not need to leave their homes, Families might get rid of girls by other means, e.g. “marrying them off” when they are as young as 13 years, and the girl would then have another family.• The Authorities or individual members of the community pick up girls on the street more quickly .For example girls are recruited to domestic works in private households (Abawa)or to work in the sex commercial sex industries.(Ashawo)

 

The importance of identifying street girls in Ghana

 

Girls on the street in Ghana have more difficulties and are often overlooked by street educators; street girls in Ghana looked down upon in many societies and are easily exploited in Africa. They usually have less economic opportunities than boys and are given less money than boys for similar activities .Educational opportunities are denied to them and street educators usually engage street boys in various activities and while paying little attention to girls. It is important to seek and work to improve the situation of street girls because they doing so, You would be:• Ensuring that young girls and boys have equal opportunities.• Boosting their low self –esteem .they must then participate in income generating activities and thus break the pattern of vulnerability to prevent early exploitation to the sex industries.• Ensuring that street girls have improved nutritional status.• Helping minimize the possibility of early unwanted and high-risk pregnancy by providing them with information about sex and reproductive health.• Ensuring the return in investment into future and generations, as young women with some education tend to ensure that their own children are educated.
