The right to education of children living and/or working on the street

Despite it is hard to determine the exact number of children working and/or living on the street worldwide, according to UNICEF estimation, they represent around 100 million children, whose fundamental rights are constantly violated. In particular, they are quite systematically denied the right to education though, up to now, the issue has not raised much awareness among society nor relevant intervention from public authorities.
