Street and Working Children Program
India has the largest population of children living on the streets in the world, with estimates as high as 10 million. Many of these children run away from home to escape extreme poverty and abuse, while others are abandoned, orphaned or neglected. PCI began its Street and Working Children Program in India in 2000 with a mission to protect, help and promote the development of street children facing challenging situations. Now expanded to serve vulnerable children not only on the streets but also from socially disadvantaged and marginalized communities, PCI works closely to give these children the education and support they need to support themselves and reintegrate into mainstream society, and to create a network of support among other voluntary organizations, donor agencies and government offices. PCI provides critical services for the children, including shelter, nutrition, education, medical care, health care, vocational training, counseling, recreation and family reunification at its centers in Delhi and Haryana.
