Résumé
In the past decade, programs have been established in developing countries to help reintegrate former street-involved children. However, minimal research has discussed the long-term outcomes of former street-involved children who are part of these reintegration programs. Drawing on a phenomenological study with a group of former street-involved children in Kenya, this research examines the lived experiences of former street-involved children who are now youth and beneficiaries of a reintegration program designed to promote skill building and job readiness. It also explores how the lived experiences of these former street-involved children differ from the lived experiences of a group of former street-involved children who are now youth but did not participate in a reintegration program. At the crux of these findings is the idea that street-involved children require effective reintegration support in order to become socially integrated as they approach adulthood.
