Mission

Jitegemee, Inc. exists to provide street children with access to formal and vocational education. We believe every child with the desire to learn and the will to succeed should be encouraged to do so. We are dedicated to removing the obstacles that prevent street children from attaining their educational or vocational goals-whether these obstacles are hunger, homelessness or lack of schooling.
