Street Child Grants Scheme

by Consortium for Street Children
Street Child Grants Scheme


UNICEF's estimate of 11 million street children in India is considered to be a conservative figure. The Consortium for Street Children supports a number of grassroots projects based in India and is operating a grants scheme to enable these vital projects to give street children a voice and help them realize their rights.

There are a great number of NGOs and projects supporting the millions of street children in India. It can be hard to know who to give your money to in order to make the most impact - our Street Child Grants Scheme eliminates those concerns.


The Consortium for Street Children will give the money raised through our grants scheme to projects we know are making a real difference to street children. Since the scheme started in 2004, we have given over £400,000 to small, grassroots street-child-focused projects in 20 different countries. CSC's support makes such projects sustainable. Members of our network based in India will be invited to apply for this grant at the next round - when we have raised the target.

Long-Term Impact

The CSC Grant Scheme enables projects to help the hardest to reach children in society AND develops the capacity of smaller on-the-ground operations so they can effectively support MORE street children. The current focus for the grant scheme is India.
