This study examined how young adults in India, who were former street children and/or child laborers, were struggling to become independent and find jobs with the support of NGOs. We conducted interviews with young adults and NGO staff, and also observed activities conducted by NGOs in India. Some young adults successfully obtained technical skills and applied for jobs with the support of NGOs. However, difficulties in admitting their own mental problems, and not being completely understood by NGO staff, made it difficult for these young people to adapt to the mainstream Indian society. Our results suggest that former street children and child laborers need continuous psychological support, in order to facilitate their participation in society as independent adults.
