' BECOMING '
Explain your idea in details:
How do we want street children to react if they are relegated to the periphery of existence in terms of everything. (social services, health, education etc) which are principles pertinent to sustainable development. We can all win. Street children's social services marks the underlying factor which ought not to be ignored. WE should not focus on immediate needs only, forgoing certain pertinent vital issues. The idea of changing the world should not be divorced to children (all encompassing) because they are the future leaders. No child must be left behind because that will be discrimination, an act against the UN Portfolios. Hence, a purported Academy becomes a key need, a pot where many can be educated, changed, empowered and "become". Education is inheritance worthy to give a person because it allows a person to make valid choices and to go out there and change the world which is full to capacity with vital opportunities. Street situation is toxic .Civil Organizations are there but in some cases come in the name of helping but deep down with a hidden agenda to seek self glory through taking pictures with the underprivileged pupils that is the reason many street children conceal themselves, they are tired. if an Academy is built no one will claim the glory but the Academy will be for pupils in street. activities. street children needs hands on projects e.g home economics, agriculture, metal work, wood work, innovative projects that they enjoy more such that they will forsake streets. sports they need to partake in lucrative tournaments e.g soccer, netball, basketball girl child empowered such that they hate streets and shoddy methods of hunting money e.g day and late night prostitution which cripples their health hence good well being and education is key to sustainably develop the nation.
