The children and youth involved in GUOTS are street-connected, spending much if not all of their time on the streets. The majority of children and youth work on the streets. Many live in public shelter – shop fronts or market stalls. In Harare, however, the majority of children and youth live on the streets and in Accra, many children and youth lived in informal settlements prior to government demolitions in 2014. As such, the children and youth involved in GUOTS are extremely marginalised and vulnerable, exposed to violence, exploitation and the harsh realities of street life on a daily basis.
