The Unity State Council of Ministers has approved 21,000 pounds to conduct a survey on street children in both Bentiu and Rubkona Counties.

“The issue of street children is a great problem facing the state,” said Minister of Labor and Public Services, Benjamin Majack Daw.

Mr. Daw said the survey will be conducted early this month and will extend to other counties.

“The results of the survey will formulate proposals to solve the problem of the street children in the state and that will be included in the new fiscal year 2013 to 2014 budget in the state.”

Mr. Daw added that the results of the survey will give law makers important facts to enable them approach the issue of street children.

It is estimated that there are hundreds street children in Unity state’s town centers and markets.

Children often end up on the street because their parents are unable to look after their basic needs.
