support at-risk ebola orphans to go to school
The Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone and Liberia cost over 4,000 lives and orphaned over 12,000 children. However, the crisis is not over yet. Street Child has identified 1,400 seriously at-risk Ebola orphans who are in urgent need of support.
Thanks to you, over the last 18 months, Street Child has provided 8,000 Ebola-impacted households with significant support, in the form of food packages, school fees and business grants and advice. Street Child has helped 7,000 Ebola orphans to go to school in Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Help change street children's lives
There are 100 million street children in the world today. For so many, life is a daily struggle. They face violence and danger and must work to afford food.
We believe every child deserves the chance of a safe home and an education. Children like 13 year old Hawa who was kicked out of her home by parents. Now she lives on the streets of Buchanan in Liberia. Some days she struggles to eat. She dreams of becoming a doctor.

Street Child started in Sierra Leone in 2008 working with a small number of street children. Since then we have helped over 50,000 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.
