What moves VYF
  • The number of street children in India is 25 million, which is the combined population of Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore and Pune.

  • Around 2.2 million of these street children die before the age of five.

  • 4.38 million children die every year in India, which is almost 12,000 each day or over 8 children a minute.

  • The ones who survive are soft targets as they are young, and poor. The condition of these homeless children often leads to them resorting to petty theft, robberies, drug trafficking, prostitution, murder and other criminal activities.

  • More than 5 million children all over the Indian streets are HIV positive.

  • Most of the girls are raped, taken away by touts and sold in brothels.

VYF has interacted with over 30,000 street children, orphans and abandoned children
