Parents know children are on the streets

Parents know children are on the streets Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Rosy Akbar says most of these children are on the streets at the knowledge of their parents.

In response to an oral question, Akbar said the parents know that their children are selling pies and coconuts and begging.

She said it is not only dangerous for the child but they can be prey to other activities like drugs.

“We come across children begging, knocking on the windows in heavy traffic areas, this is a danger to their lives,” she said.

“So, I would first and foremost urge all the parents across the country to be aware of where their children are. We look after your children when they are in school.

“Schools have counselling services. After coronavirus, there were services provided by various counselling agencies that the Ministry of Education engages.

“In cases of mental health, we are not going to go out on the streets looking for children. If parents have issues and if they need assistance, we all work together to provide services.

“On a daily basis, my ministry has parents and children come in and we provide them with assistance. Some of them even come to us for food.

“We understand that times are hard but getting your children to beg is not a solution. It is an adult responsibility,” she said.

Akbar said if all adults carry out their responsibilities well, Fiji will not have any child beggars.
