CHILDREN IN CRISIS TO JOIN FORCES WITH STREET CHILD
As we approach the 10th anniversary of Street Child, we are entering an exciting new phase in our journey as a leading international development NGO. In recent years we have developed a close relationship with a charity called Children in Crisis which, like us, focuses on education in the world’s toughest environments. Street Child are delighted to announce today that Street Child and Children in Crisis have formally joined forces, with Children in Crisis becoming a subsidiary of Street Child.
This move will further strengthen Street Child’s outstanding work in Liberia and Sierra Leone where Children in Crisis have proud track-records. Further, and potentially even more excitingly, this event will expand Street Child’s impact into Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo, which have been Children in Crisis’ flagship operations in recent years. Senior staff are already exploring ways to scale up our projects and help more children into education.
Sarah, Duchess of York was the founder of Children in Crisis and has taken up the role of Founder Patron of Street Child. This week Sarah, Duchess of York visited Street Child’s projects in Nepal and you can read about the trip and her excitement for the opportunities that lie ahead for the new organisation in this article which appeared in The Evening Standard. We will be sharing much more news about our new and existing programmes and look forward to your continued support.
