Every child in this universe has the same right to get an education. However, some street children are not able to claim what they are supposed to obtain, such as the right to get a decent education and to play like other children, due to economic conditions which do not allow them to obtain their rights. The researchers attempt to facilitate them to develop their skills in English so that they can achieve their dreams. This research result indicates that most street children in Kendari undergo some financial and family problems which make them unable to afford education tuition fee. These problems appear to be the factors causing them to stop attending schools. Therefore, they prefer to be street children and work as street musicians, bearers, and parking attendants, for example to meet their day-to-day needs. Data were gathered through questionnaires and interviews. To analyze the data, qualitative method was employed.
