Mission Statement

Street Child US offers vulnerable street children in West Africa and Nepal the opportunity to access education, and provides their families with the means to keep them there. With sustainability at the heart of everything we do, we help some of the world's poorest people create a new today, and a better tomorrow.

Description

Empty bellies lead to empty classrooms. But without education, ending the cycle of poverty is almost impossible. Our solutio n is simple: reunite children with their families, provide the adults with the chance to generate their own income, help them save for their future, and get those children back into school.

There are four strands to our work:

  • Emergency/disaster relief
  • Income generation initiatives
  • Family reunification and support
  • Teacher training and school construction

Street Child US is a fundraising office for work which has been in operation since 2008, providing educational opportunities for street children in West Africa and, now, Nepal.

We are a member of the global Street Child federation, which also has offices in continental Europe and the UK.
