WE’RE GIVING THOUSANDS OF GIRLS IN SIERRA LEONE AND LIBERIA THE CHANCE TO GO TO SCHOOL
In Sierra Leone and Liberia, thousands of girls aren’t given the chance to go to school because of poverty, loss of a caregiver, early marriage and teenage pregnancy.
Last year our ‘Girls Speak Out’ campaign, which was match funded by the UK government, raised over £1m helping 10,000 girls back to school.
STREET CHILD BELIEVES EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO A SAFE HOME AND AN EDUCATION.
From building schools and training teachers, to connecting orphaned or abandoned children with families and giving parents in poverty business grants, our sustainable projects are all about giving the world's poorest children a chance.
Street Child started in Sierra Leone in 2008 working with a small number of street children. Since then we have helped over 60,000 children to go to school and enabled thousands of families to generate sustainable incomes so that their children can stay in education. During the Ebola crisis, Street Child helped over 20,000 Ebola orphans, providing emergency support and connecting thousands with families. Today, Street Child works in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nepal and Nigeria with a current emphasis on education in emergencies and girls education.
