As 2012 comes to a close, we at Retrak want to thank you for your support of our work with street children in Africa. Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, Retrak was able to accomplish some amazing things in 2012, such as:
Over 200 children were helped to return to a safe and loving family
Retrak’s 1,000th child came off the streets and into a home
Over 1,200 children were engaged through our outreach activities
Retrak’s US office, Retrak America, became a registered 501(c)(3) charity
African Union observer status was approved for Retrak
30 boys completed small business training in Addis Ababa and returned to their families or are living independently
Retrak began working with street girls
Adding to our work in Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda, a new partnership was formed with a group that works with street children in Tanzania.
That’s just a partial list of Retrak’s accomplishments of 2012. We look forward to expanding our work and reaching even more vulnerable children in 2013. Our vision is a world in which no child is forced to live on the streets, and with your help we will continue working to transform highly vulnerable children’s lives, preserve families, empower communities and give each child a voice.
Thanks again for your support. Have a wonderful 2013!
