Abstract: Social exclusion and the phenomenon of street children have been contentious issues in many states around the globe. The research is titled an investigation on the impact of social exclusion of street children on their rights. This research therefore is concerned with elucidating the impact of social exclusion on the rights of street children in Gweru. Street children are alienated from the mainstream society and thus have constrained access to social relations, access to resources and rights available in the society. Their alienation exacerbates their lack of freedom from fear and freedom from want which leaves them in a state of perpetual human insecurity. The fundamental objectives of this research include an understanding of the causes and process of social exclusion, the perceptions of the society towards street children, and the efforts of the government and other stakeholders aimed at alleviating social exclusion and promoting social inclusion that enhances the participation, integration and protection of the rights of street children. The research methodology that is to be used in the research is qualitative research method as this topic requires in depth information on the causes, nature and process of social exclusion and how it adversely impact on the rights of street children. This research is built upon the theory of social exclusion which denotes the alienation of individuals from the mainstream society thereby crippling their ability to participate fully and effectively in social, economic, cultural and political life.
