Numbers of children who are either living or working on the streets in Turkey’s towns and cities have risen dramatically in recent years.

Patterns of migration that show more and more families moving to urban centres, a general deterioration in the traditionally strong family unit and a failure to keep children within the education system are some of the most prominent factors contributing to the phenomenon.

We listen to what some of the children themselves have to say about their situation. We also hear from colleagues in government, the media and within UNICEF Turkey about how they are working to address the issue.
