How KERB is supporting Street Child
We've partnered with street food experts KERB to support mothers in West Africa to set up their own businesses so they can pay for school uniforms, books and pens.
15p from every meal bought at one of KERB’s private events will be donated to Street Child and our work helping children in some of the world's poorest countries off the streets and into school.
Why Supporting Mothers Matters
For so many of the families we work with, the cost of education is a high barrier. Simple household poverty keeps millions of children out of school, a tragic pattern which, unless broken, has the potential to self-repeat endlessly.
Yet education has the power to transform lives and reduce poverty. In fact, if all children left school with basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of extreme poverty.
That’s why our livelihoods programmes are a critical part of our work helping children getting into, and staying in, school.
We support low income families with tailored packages of support to lift themselves out of extreme poverty so they are able to afford the costs of educating their children.
As well as a financial input, we typically provide business training, planning support, mentoring and access to an incentivised savings schemes.
