Mission

We work to make sure no child ever has to live alone on the streets. With projects in the UK, India and East Africa we race to reach these children before an abuser does. At street level our outreach workers find children and take them to one of our safe spaces. We provide food, shelter, safety, support and education while trying to reunite them with family or another long-term solution. At community level we change perceptions through campaigns, training and skills transfer to make street children visible and not to be ignored or stepped over. At government level we use our research and expertise to influence policy makers and leverage government support for children living on the streets.
