GUARDIAN MEDIA LIMITED advises of the
resignation of Mr. Brandon Khan as Deputy
Managing Director with effect from July 31, 2014.
In this final install-
ment of snapshots of
life on the streets,
talked to children and
adults, onlookers and
experts, about child
casualties of parental
neglect and abuse.
Runaway girls are
taken off the streets
more often than boys,
says Judy Wilson,
founder of Rainbow
Rescue, a home for boys
who used to live on the
That doesn t mean
the girls are better off,
"You would see all
boys out---but the girls
are picked up to work in
bars and brothels. You
hardly ever saw the girls.
Many ran away from
Wilson said the
reports made to the
police about child abuse
have recently increased.
"You see what is hap-
pening in the world and
I am not seeing it stop-
ping any time soon," she
But there are some
reasons to be hopeful.
"Now people have an
avenue, and somewhere
they can go. They can
"Before it was just
swept under the carpet.
Now measures will be
taken...more people will
come out and that is
great," she said.
"There were children
in the past who these
things happened to and
now they are adults.
There was a time when
nobody did anything
and it was kept a secret.
These adults are messed
up but the children now
can get help."
Wilson said the police

times ask Rainbow Res-

children who are found
by the authorities. Rain-

She said some boys
were misplaced and sent
to a correctional facility
like St Michael s Home
or the Youth Training
Camp (YTC) when they
did not need to be dis-
"They even putting
children in a correctional
facility when they don t
belong there. You can t
put some of them in the
same facility. They
might rape them in the
first night," she said,
refusing to discuss that
subject any further.
That s a risk out on
the streets too, of

up by men. One of the
boys (who was 13 years
old at the time) told me
a story about how he
was picked up by a man.
Still no real options for street children

Chairman of the Youth Empowerment Foundation Corey Joseph said the
regeneration of the "old-time days" was important for the future of children.
"We motivate young people to achieve destiny and purpose. The reason
why we have so much violence against children is that parents have got so
busy...they do not have time to look after their children," he said.
Joseph said another reason for the breakdown in values in the youths is
because of the Cohabitational Relationship Act, which gave legal recognition
and rights to common-law spouses.
"That has destroyed a lot of homes and there is no respect for marriage.
Children are being abused by their stepfathers and being assaulted.
"We have to go back to the old-time days where people learned the
importance of having respect for their elders and our leaders," he said.
"ANR Robinson spoke of moral and spiritual values and we need to go
back to that. We must have more love in our communities and our homes.
We need love and it must come from the family. The child must feel love
when they leave the home in the morning."
Joseph said it was also important for families to pray together and bless
the children before they leave their homes.
