International Day for Street Children: 12th April

Demand a Day
Demand a Day

The 2013 International Day for Street Children is just a few days away! This year we are demanding that the United Nations recognises the Day, so that street children and their champions have a louder voice. It may only be one day a year, but it helps us get closer to realising street children's rights. We want the whole world to hear Maggie in Zambia saying "I want an education"; Pedro in Bolivia asking "I want the government to listen to me"; and Jo in the USA requesting "I want to be safe".

There are lots of ways of helping to support the Day - you can sign the Demand a Day petition, change your Facebook profile pic, tweet about the Day or hold up an 'I demand a day' sign and send us the photo. For ways to get involved please visit

Thank you for helping to make the International Day for Street Children 2013 even more impactful, raising awareness of street children across the world.
