What is a “Pipeline Kid?”

“Pipeline kid” is a term used to refer to a child who lives on the streets during the day and returns to very deplorable conditions to bed down for the night because they have nowhere to go and no one to go home to.

Poverty causes a combination of issues that ultimately ends in a child getting wrapped up into street life. The parents may die from a multitude of diseases, leaving the child to fend for themselves. Other times, a child may be abandoned because their parents are no longer able to care for them or their parents leave to beg and never return. Even still, more children are becoming displaced by violence. With any of these situations, traffickers can easily take advantage of a child’s vulnerable situation.

This is why we exist – to give these street children hope out of their deplorable situation.
