From street to hope: faith based and secular programs in Los Angeles, Mumbai and Nairobi for street living children - New Delhi Sage Publications 2011 - xiv, 294 p.

The book incorporates empirical data from a cross-cultural study of this phenomenon in three mega cities Mumbai, Nairobi and Los Angeles and some of the best practices developed by faith-based and secular organizations to help street-living children. These data include global estimates, analysis of the causative factors, occupations of these children, as also the resulting problems. The book also gives new insights into the impact of state policies to support secular and faith-based organizations, and the way social service is practised by such organizations in India, Kenya and USA.
