3 million children are in need of education and urgent support in Northern Nigeria. Since 2011, conflict has forced more than 2 million people to flee their homes. Schools have been destroyed and teachers have been killed.
We need to act now.
We are working to provide safe, inclusive spaces for children to learn, so that these children have the chance to go to school and build better futures.
But we cannot do it without your support.
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 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.
