These are tough times to be young, there's record unemployment in many countries, frustration is building and at times spilling out onto the streets. And if you're both young and vulnerable, you can often fall through the cracks and descend into a spiral of suffering and exploitation. Zeinab Badawi talks to British psychotherapist Camila Batmanghelidjh. She set up Kids Company in 1996 - a network of drop-in centres in London where thousands of deprived and needy young people receive, love, care and shelter. She says she has the answers, does she?
