I used qualitative research in the form of semi-structured interviews conducted in Bolivia's third largest city, Cochabamba. I then linked the results to socialconstruction perspective which contributed to the result that the various professional groups descriptions differed depending on the relationship they worked with the children. It was mainly on whether they worked in close contact or distanced level of street children, but also their education and the workplace played role in their descriptions. I came to the conclusion that the situation of children living on the streets is a problem mainly because of the poverty that exists in Bolivia, and that it is not just about poverty, the lack of food and shelter, but also poverty of knowledge, which in turn affects both social workers in their work and the society it self.
