In this paper, we conduct a comprehensive analysis of the street children problem in India. We first divided the topic into five parts: security and production, psychological effects, health and nutrition, education, and community attitude and stigma. For each topic, we analyzed relevant literature about the current status of street children in India. Next, we articulated our findings and reflections regarding the street children issue. Finally, we analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of two non governmental organizations (NGOs) currently working to address this issue (Wishing Well and Bal Jeevan), and provided specific recommendations to direct the future development of NGOs.
