    - Street children and youth engage in a diverse range of work activities.
    - Working on the fringes of the formal and informal economy, they undertake both legal and illegal work, much of which makes them vulnerable to exploitation and harm and brings them into conflict with city authorities.
    - Earnings are low and unstable and are frequently insufficient to meet their basic needs.
