Vietnam has a rapidly developing economy. Over the past 20 years, Vietnam has seen a remarkable improvement in poverty reduction. However, the gap between the rich and the poor continues to widen.
All over Vietnam’s major cities, people often overlook the thousands of children who live and work on the busy, urban streets.
Some children live on the streets with their parents. Some leave their families in rural areas to come to the city and make extra money. Others are orphans, often finding family through gangs and other orphaned street children.
