Jyoti barely remembers her parents. She worked as a housemaid from the age of 10. “I was scared every day because I knew that anyone in the house could beat me for my smallest mistakes.”
She'd never been to school and her future was bleak - until she met Rani. Read Jyoti's story: http://bit.ly/29UWLFG

We fully support the call for scrapping the ‘absent’ category. Children face many risks, including sexual exploitation, when they fall through the net. We believe all children deserve the opportunity to access the help and support they need to stay safe and to prevent them going missing again.
A new ‘absent’ category should be scrapped says Ann Coffey, Labour chair of all-party group of MPs

When we've helped a child get away from the streets and back home to their family, that isn't the end of our work. We support children's families in the long-term.

So, if a child stops going to school, our family workers will be there to find out why.

Often the answer is as simple as 'we couldn't afford the uniform'.

You've run through wind, rain and snow. You've woken at the crack of dawn and fallen into bed exhausted. You've missed social events and time with loved ones. You've endured aches and pains.
It will be worth it.
You're changing children's lives.

A HUGE good luck to all our London Marathon runners - we're cheering you on!

A child arrives alone at a station in India every five minutes.

Read about a day in the life of our search and rescue team leader at one of India's busiest stations.
Shashikala Kale leads Project Talaash – the children's search and rescue team based at the Victoria Terminus in Mumbai – one of the busiest railway stations in India. She told us what she does in a typical day: “You get to know the warning signs that tell you a child might be in trouble.

No family. No hope. No future. If you don't fight for her, no-one will.

In India’s children’s homes we found a lost generation of girls who don’t go to school. Early marriage or sex work - they face a bleak choice to survive.

Find out how we're giving these forgotten girls hope and a future: http://bit.ly/29D8Hzi

We've seen supporters conquering some huge sporting challenges this year already - with lots more to come! If you're considering taking on your own challenge and would like to change the lives of street children at the same time, we'd love to hear from you.

We can help with fundraising ideas and tips, plus you'd receive a sought after Railway Children t-shirt or vest!

Having a safe place to sleep is a luxury most children on the streets don't have. They often sleep in groups for protection, but rape and beatings are a nightly risk.

"If Viv hadn’t found me that night, I don’t know where I’d be now."

Natalie was 17 when she escaped her abusive and alcoholic mother. She ended up in London - where she moved in with a much older man she’d only just met.

Find out how we changed her story.

We fight for children living on the streets
Introduction

Railway Children is an international children's charity. We fight for vulnerable children who live alone at risk on the streets, where they suffer abuse and exploitation. In the UK, society often denies their existence, and in other countries the problem is so prevalent that it has become ‘normal’.

They run away or are forced to leave homes where they suffer poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. They find themselves living on the streets because there is nowhere else to go and no one left to turn to. The problems they face on the streets are often even worse than those they endured at home. Every day we fight to change their story.
