There are approximately 850,000 children living and working on the streets in Bolivia. The legal age to work is just 10. Bolivia is one of Latin America’s least developed countries, experiencing one of the highest levels of income inequality in the world. With almost half of the population aged under 18; children withstand the most poverty and deprivation. The country’s lack of a formal child protection system means there is an ever-increasing level of vulnerability among young people.
