ABSTRACT The quest for this study was to examine factors contributing to the increase of street children in Jinja municipality in Jinja district. The study was guided by three objectives and research questions. These objectives are; to establish how poverty contributes to the number of street children in Jinja municipality, to establish how socio-economic family status contribute to the number of street children in Jinja municipality, to assess how child abuse contributes to the number of street children in Jinja municipality. The study was also guided by social development theory coined by Erik Erikson (New York 1969). Relevant literature reviewed revealed that there are several factors that contribute to increase of street children in Jinja municipality. The study was mainly qualitative nature. It employed descriptive research design which was preferred because it allowed the researcher to conduct in-depth interviews and observation schedules to gather both factual information systematically and also record the characteristics of interest as they occur. Two rehabilitation centers was purposively sampled to participate in the study. Purposive, stratified and simple random sampling methods were used to determine respondents. Data was collected through open and close ended questionnaires. The categories of respondents were street children, children in rehabilitation centers and administrators from the two centers. The study revealed the socio economic factors that contribute to the increase of street children in Jinja municipality ranging from poverty, lawlessness, alcohol and drug abuse, social permissiveness family breakup, child abuse and inadequate good will from the governments towards supporting poor families. The study concluded that there was an urgent need for the government to facilitate provision of feeding programs, in public primary schools, compulsory free primary education should be enforced and stakeholders sensitized on their roles to promote street children to access quality education. The study recommends that the church focuses on spiritual formation and teaching on marriage and family life to strengthen the basic unit of society, which is the safety net for the children. The government as well as the civil society should spearhead massive education on the rights of children. This would reduce the rampant of children rights brought about through ignorance
