Item #2: The Talsky Center and the Stahili Foundation have jointly produced a document on the situation of street children, and submitted it to the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child. The document is now on the website of the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rigths and can be accessed at:

The document is intended to influence the contents of the Committee’s General Comment on the rights and needs of such children. (Generally speaking, a General Comment is a statement of the Committee’s interpretation as to how the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child applies to children’s various situations and plights.)
