However, today our streets are littered with the young who suffer the indignity of begging for bread crusts in order to stay alive. It is no news that there is an epidemical phenomenon of street children who are reared on free-range system. Child prostitution and mass destitution of the young. There is a high rate of drop-out amongst our young people from different institutions of learning on pecuniary grounds. Most of these drop-outs often end up in urban centres in search of menial jobs.
