It is boarded by Kenya in the Eastern part, Tanzania in the southern part, Democratic republic of Congo in the west part, Sudan in the Northern part and Rwanda in the south western part amongst others.  It has decentralized government where by land or areas was divided into districts in total 111 and it’s capital city is Kampala.  It’s population is estimated to 30 million people out of that, the children are estimated to 57% living under vulnerable background and therefore regarding law any citizen below 18 years old in Uganda is categories as a child.  The existence of vulnerable children is directly related to a number of social problems which includes poverty urbanization(rural to urban migration ) war conflicts, the social problems are resulting from the AIDS epidemics ,lack of basic education and life skills and the breakdown of the extended family systems, communities valves and traditional social and economic structure. The problem is escalating there is lack of comparable surveys and figures documenting this increase.  The vulnerable children can be defined as any child who has not reached the age of adulthood but whom the street or unoccupied dwelling has become his/ her habitual place of abode and with no proper care and protection. Therefore, the street children represents one of the most disadvantaged categories of vulnerable children.

CATERGORIES OF STREETCHILDREN  Street children are not one homogenous group, but consists of individuals with different backgrounds and difficulties, such as orphans, children from very poor families, Abused or rejected children and run aways.What they have in common are that they are spending most of their daily life on the street and are either partly or fully making their living on the streets.  Street children are also characterized by lack of adult guidance, care and protection.they are categorized into two broad categories. (A) Full Part time children.  These are those without contacts with their family who spend day and night on the streets and verandas and actually view the street as their “home” or sanctuary. (B) Part Timer/ Day Time Children  These are those working on the street but living at home such as a school drop outs and children sex workers.  NB: Both street youths and street children are names used to describe these children. Street children range from age 0-18years and street youth with 15-25 years according to the standard children statute UN age bracket.  These categories are transitional for instance, children may be temporarily forced to help the family earn a living or cater for themselves. Most of them come from families living in difficult circumstances.
