Approximately two thirds of all Guatemalan children live in poverty which leaves many abandoned on the streets. The streets of Guatemala have served as a refuge to children who have no one to turn to for refuge, love and understanding and at the same time face a world of violence and crime. For some of them it is due to lack of parental attention, others have been orphaned, and others have run away from abusive home environments. All of these children are left unprotected to face a world full of violence and crime in the streets where many of them have lost their lives.
