Street Child

STREET CHILD BELIEVES EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO A SAFE HOME AND AN EDUCATION. From building schools and training teachers, to connecting orphaned or abandoned children with families and giving parents in poverty business grants, their sustainable projects are all about giving the world's poorest children a chance.  Street Child is a UK charity, established in 2008, that aims to create educational opportunity for some of the world's most vulnerable children. Street Child started in Sierra Leone in 2008 working with a small number of street children. Since then they have helped over 50,000 children to go to school and enabled thousands of families to generate sustainable incomes so that their children can stay in education. During the Ebola crisis, Street Child helped over 20,000 Ebola orphans, providing emergency support and connecting thousands with families. Today, Street Child works in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nepal and Nigeria with a current emphasis on education in emergencies and girls education.
