Mission Statement

Retrak works to transform highly vulnerable children’s lives, preserve families, empower communities and give each of them a voice. We put children at the very heart of everything we do and will be fearless and tenacious in defending and promoting their rights.

Description

Retrak works with street children in Africa to give them a real alternative to life on the street. There are numerous reasons why children live and sleep on the streets such as poverty, family strife, abuse, being orphaned (often as a result of HIV/AIDS), war and famine. Often abused or violated on the street, regarded as barely human and on the very fringe of society, they eke out an existence, begging or scavenging through trash for food. Our aim is that these children can realize their full potential and discover their inherent worth.
