Photographer's Note

The phenomenon of street children is a growing concern in many developing states,
particularly in Africa. Ghana is no exception to the general trend of children fending for
themselves on the streets. However, very little is known about this unique population in
Ghana. This study provides a general overview of the phenomenon of street children in
Ghana. This article particularly examines the experiences of street children in Ghana, how
they ended up in the streets, how they survive in the streets, and abuses they suffer from
being in the streets. This is a qualitative study, which uses interviewing as the primary data
collection tool. The data is analyzed by using a phenomenological frame work, where the
final result is a description of the phenomenon, as seen through the eyes of people who
have experienced it firsthand.
