Abstract

Urbanization has increased the population across the globe as well as in India. A large number of the rural population are migrating to urban areas in search of employment, and to have a life with enhanced facilities. Due to space scarcity in the city, these populations and start residing in areas nearer to the railway station, and also in the neglected part of the city and gradually the slums are developed. Following this, these slums dwellers suffer from a dearth of basic facilities and hence children and women are the worst victims of this migration. Since children are the future of any nation and therefore it is the responsibility of the family, community, state, and country to protect and provide them with the best opportunities to grow and develop. Therefore in a country like India, a developing country, children of this nation are under threat to various types of vulnerabilities be it like abuse, neglect, exploitation and suffer numerous issues related to child protection. The reasons for such vulnerabilities are due to poor socio-economic conditions of the families, unsafe and lack of protective environment in their homes and community, etc. Apart from these vulnerabilities, these children are susceptible to health problems like diarrhea, malnutrition and other issues hampering their growth and development. Henceforth this paper attempts to visualize the vulnerabilities and challenges among the children residing in the urban slums of Kolkata through several case studies.
