We believe in a world where no child ever has to live on the streets....

Children run away or are forced to leave homes where they suffer poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. They find themselves living on the streets because there is nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to. We work to reach children as soon as they arrive on the streets and intervene before an abuser can.

What we do >>

We work at three levels for long-term change

Street level

We meet the immediate needs of children on the streets. Our outreach workers go out on the streets to find vulnerable children before an abuser can.

Community level

We change the perceptions of local communities. We make children on the streets visible to their communities and aid understanding of how they came to be there.
