There are many reason that children runaway from their homes or from their caregivers. It could be to find work, escape ill treatment at home or simply follow the lights of the city with its promises of a better life. Girls are as likely as boys to run away from homes due to parental neglect or dysfunctional families. Many of them land on the country’s railway platforms, where they beg, steal or do menial jobs, such as sweeping trains, to survive. Very often, they fall victim to child traffickers or become vulnerable to other forms of exploitation.
