                                                Street children in Bangladesh

In our Bangladesh most
of the children live in the street because of their poverty whom we known as street children in our society. They
are making bound to stay in the street because of their poverty. They have no
living or sleeping place except for the street. They become deprive from their
basic rights. They don’t get proper food, education, treatment, shelter
facility what they need. They have to lead a miserable life what they actually
don’t deserve. The condition of street children is very poor in our Bangladesh.

There are a lot of
street children in our country. Actually there is no specific statistics about
the amount of street children. Infect it is not possible to count that huge
number of street children. But it is estimated that there are more than 60, 0000 street children living in
Bangladesh and almost 75% of them
living in the capital city of Bangladesh, Dhaka.
There are a lot of reasons which make bound them to become street children. Not
only poverty but also most of the parents are responsible for their miserable
life. In our country most of the parents reject those children who are
autistic. These parents don’t want to take any responsibility of their
children. The other reason is that some respected peoples deny accepting their
children who are outcome of their affair. Though this is not their children’s
fault but despite they have to tolerate a lot of sufferings through their life.

In our country most of
the street children don’t get education
facility. Even they don’t have any basic knowledge. We know education is the
backbone for a nation. Without education no nation can progress in life. Even without
education there is no future in life. But these street children are being
deprived from the light of education. They don’t get any chance to go to
school. For this reason they don’t have any idea about what is right and what
is wrong for them. They have no any proper direction about the right way of
their life. As a result they become easily affected with several unsocial activities
which hamper the development of our country. Most of the children also become
deprived from their medical
facilities because of poverty. Every year many children affected by several diseases like malaria, typhoid,
diarrhea, cholera etc. and died by lacking of proper treatment. Moreover they
don’t get proper food and nutrition according to their physical
demand. Statistics show that about 77.5%
children can have three times their meal and other children take their meal
only two times in a day. That’s why most of the street children don’t get their
proper weight. Statistics show that about 65%
children are under their actual weight. Furthermore many children usually take
their bath in a daily basis and don’t wash their hands before taking their meal
by which they easily become affected with various diseases.

Many street children
have to face a lot of struggle in
their life in our country. They have to earn money to support their family. For
the unemployment of parents, lower income often their family has to depend on
their income. Approximately 20%-30%
family depends on their children contribution. That’s why sometimes they do
such kinds of work for money which is really very risk for their life like construction
work. Some of them sell flowers, newspaper, toys, cigarette etc. in the road to
common people. Some of them work as a maid in different house. Again some of
them seek beg from people. In the reality as most of the street children do not
have proper knowledge about the right thing because of the lack of education so
they easily commit various crimes for example steal, hijacking, murder etc for
want of money. Moreover some children expose themselves with very cruel
situation like they do prostitution, eve teasing even sometimes they also
become drug addicted. During childhood such crimes usually force them to be big
criminal in their future life. And at last they become a big criminal in their
future life.

In the Bangladesh most
of the people have very poor attitudes
towards the street children. They don’t consider them as a human. They often
behave very rude with them. Some people do physical torture on their maid if
the maid makes any mistake. Sometimes the children oppressed by the police for
living on the road. They often beat them, sometimes ask bribes from them. If
the children deny giving them bribes then the police involve them with several
false cases. Because of these inhumanity activities many children suffer trauma
and physiological disorder very often.

Children are the hope
for our future. But our street children who have low position in our country.
They are becoming deprived from their every facility which actually their
rights as a human. We should provide them enough shelter, food, education,
treatment facility what they actually deserve. If we can take necessary steps
to reduce their sufferings then our country will able to improve its condition.
Because it is impossible for any country to make development without a part its
total population so if we can make sure the street children’s facility they
will also be able to contribute in our economical sector. As a result our
country will be able to establish itself as a rich and powerful country in the
