Reason for Deactivation

As most of the work we do at Street Smart overlaps our other project Reintegrating Street Connected Children, to avoid confusion and duplication, we are going to deactivate this project on GlobalGiving and incorporate it fully within our other project.  Thank you all for your support. 

We continue to operate our Street Smart programme despite deactivating the project on here. Street Smart includes outreach by a team of trained and experienced social workers who patrol the streets and accompany our mobile school on its trips around town in order to meet new arrivals on the streets as soon as possible and to work with those we have previously met.  They build up trust with these children and learn their stories and problems.  This is followed by family visits, finding solutions for the problems experienced in the home and offering counselling services, mediation and home help such as food baskets, support with education and offering of vocational training opportunities or business grants to family members to improve the financial well being of the family.  Most of the problems we encounter stem from poverty in the home and we do what we can to alleviate this and provide sustainable income generating solutions.  In those cases where we cannot reintegrate a child into their former home or family eg due to illness or death of a family member, we will do everything we can to find a foster family or relative who will care for the child.
