The United Nations estimates that there may be as many as 1.5 million street children in Pakistan. In Islamabad, the capital, a self-sustaining organization called Lettucebee Kids is working to help children who have very adult responsibilities.

Beenish Ahmed reports for Deutsche Welle radio about a recent art exhibition by the street children that is giving some of them a cause for hope.
