Abstract

The plight of the street and working children all over the world has been analysed from different points of view in different studies. The overall situation of the street and working children living in developing and least developed countries is obviously much grimmer than that of socioeconomically many well-off countries. Bangladesh, as a developing country, is no better at all with regard to the situation of the street and working children. The number of these unfortunate children in Bangladesh is quite high. This paper focuses on a number of strategies that the street and working children in Sylhet city of Bangladesh have been forced to adopt in order to mere survive. It identifies some important structural issues relating to the situation of the street and working children living in Sylhet city; the issues which may be held responsible for languishing situation of our helpless children. The study is basically based on primary data collected directly from the respondents, but the data from secondary sources have also been used for substantiating our analytical points of view. An effort has been made in the study to unveil the difficulties in which these children somehow survive and concrete suggestions have been recommended for overcoming the shackles that have pushed the children to be in the situation of exploitation, deprivation and discrimination, making them miserably hopeless.
