According to me. i think through the consortiums created it can be reduced by building local, national capacity advisory services, conducting research and analysis and also engage with the wider community to integrate partnerships, raise awareness and mobilize support for anti-discrimination measures such as legislation, policies and programs formulation for the children living on the streets.

we must teach people that those people on the streets are like others even them are human beings like others they deserve to be loved like others for example they must interact in all programs of any where. But in most cases these people are not allowed to involve in useful programs

Is discrimination worse for adults living on the streets or children? Do children get more sympathy and support because they are young?

Uganda being with the largest number of children living on the streets as compared to the adults, its children who are discriminated. unfortunately, they are supported neither sympathized for being young.
(Faisal Uganda at August 31, 2017 12:38 pm)
That’s interesting Faisal as here in the UK we have more adults being visibly homeless living on the streets. If a child is living on the streets our social care system (provided through the government/ local councils) will help to care for them.
(Nicola (UK) at August 31, 2017 12:41 pm)
Discrimination is not worse for adults but its mainly worst on the children’s side because they seem to be young
(pretty(UGANDA) at August 31, 2017 12:59 pm)
I would say that both are discriminated against but children can be better at making money or getting food as they are ’cute’ and can play on people’s sympathies more. Therefore there are more options of support through organisations etc that help them. Children can be seen as more vulnerable and in need of rescue. Adults who beg get more negative attention as they are seen as lazy and they ’should get a job’. But children can also be exploited by adults on the streets…so the risks faced by children could be greater as they are potentially more open to abuse.

I think the real question needs to be why as a society we think it is acceptable to have people (young or old) having to live on the streets? We need to take action on the root causes that lead people on the streets and come together as a community to show that we believe there should be no street called home! Discrimination shows an acceptance and lack of empathy towards people who are are living on the streets.

(Elvis king(uganda) at August 31, 2017 12:07 pm)
homelessness is definitely a sign of entrenched inequality and a lack of services (e.g. mental health services) – it is the symptom and therefore there is a need to focus on social welfare systems and better safety nets to prevent the street being an option.

what is the general perception of society of people, and children in particular, who live on the streets? What is the perception on Uganda? Are people who live on the streets treated differently to others? Do we need to change how people who live on the streets are viewed?

I have heard many bad things. Homeless people are liers, dirty, thieves, drug addicts, hopeless cases. Many people dont seem to associate them with being human beings the same as they are
(concerned at August 31, 2017 12:21 pm)
Yes, children living on the streets are treated differently. Can you imagine they are termed to be thugs, thieves, indiscipline ones, orphans, homeless which is not true because every child has got relatives. So i think we need to change the perception of people against the children living on the streets especially in Uganda
(Faisal (Uganda) at August 31, 2017 12:47 pm)
The phrase ’street child’ is so laden with meaning and missconception – often they are either seen in terms of vulnerability and in need of care and rescue, or they are seen as deviant and need to be forcibly removed (police round ups happen in Uganda and Kenya). In Kenya, street children do not come under the children’s office, but instead they are dealt with by the ministry of labour and social protection – so even from a legislature point of view they are not children in the same sense…

children living on the street are clean, they are not criminal,they shouldn’t be discriminated.
(SADATI(Uganda) at August 31, 2017 12:23 pm)
Is part of the reason that children are on the streets linked to discrimination? For example, those that come from very poor, slum backgrounds that are unable to access services and support networks? Is the lack of appropriate local government support and safety nets linked to corruption and discrimination?

I think it would be great to ask people who have negative views of people on the street to imagine they lost their income and home and what they would do if they ended up on the streets and how they would feel about how their life had changed. Ask people to have more empathy and understanding towards those on the streets rather than treating them like criminals and dirt!

There’s need for creating awareness about the reasons that drive people to the streets and their plight, mostly highlighting the fact that most of them are not of their own making

OMGParenting has said that there needs to be decent paying jobs before discrimination is solved. Are jobs needed before education or sensitivity can take place?
(Hayden UK at August 31, 2017 11:59 am)
Education about how this can happen – homelessness is not simply a choice or a certain type of person. People need to understand how this can happen, opportunities to help/support each other, etc.
(Emma UK at August 31, 2017 12:24 pm)
So education about homelessness will lead to sensitivity and then to progress?

Its always onebthing that makes children go on street and thats poor parenting. If all parents and the relatives of different children knew the importance of giving their chilfren time, then most of these problem would really not take place. Its the responsibility of parents to take care of their children and teach them how to be resilient even in hard situations. If the worst comes to the worst and the child cpmes on street, then it means that the community instead of blaming these children on street they have to parebt them, insteal hope in them to come up with good citizens. This is because they are the leaders of tomorrow and no one would wish to have bad leaders. Its our responsibility to shape these children who are on street because they can be some people who are important. Pliz dont give up on them. Its not too late. Start now!
(Bazibu steve (U) at August 31, 2017 12:24 pm)
Sincerely speaking nothing can be done unless every one xhanges his or perception and attitude towards the children living on the streets. They are not some thing to play with so they can be some thing important in life or in future. I believe that what u wish to a frienf is the same way that you will akso be wished. Is there any body who wants any other individual to wish bad to his child? If no then know that what you are also doing on those children on street is equally bad. We just need to advocate for their rights
