Street children look at a traffic signal in New Delhi, India on May 23, 2016. In New Delhi there are 100,000 homeless children and 33 per cent of them are only six to ten-years-old, according to UNICEF. They have nowhere else to go. Streetchildren work as rag-pickers, in tea-stalls and dhabhas (roadside eateries), as shoeshine boys or vendors. But street life can be unpleasant and risky. They face physical abuse, the callousness of policemen, are vulnerable to drugs and to health insecurities. Photo Credit: India Photo Agency (InPA)
