A global movement to defend the rights of all street children

Who We Are

Consortium for Street Children (CSC) is a growing global network of 100+ organisations, researchers and practitioners across 135 countries. We unite to make the voices and views of street children heard on the issues that matter to them, and work tirelessly to protect their human rights.

The Convention on the Rights of the Child outlines the human rights all governments are obligated to protect for all children. However, street children and homeless youth are often denied access to their rights.

CSC Annual Conference 2018 – Equality and Inclusion



Thank you to everyone who joined us in person and remotely for our 2018 conference on Equality and Inclusion for Street Children. We’re now really excited to share this video with you that showcases some of the highlights from the day and hears different participant’s perspectives on what equality and inclusion means to them.

"Attended by delegates from over 70 countries, the 2018 CSC conference about Inclusion and Equality was a vibrant meeting of diverse voices, with a wide range of discussions on how we can all work towards empowering street-connected children and making sure that their voices are heard by organisations and governments around the world."
Caroline Ford (CSC Chief Executive)
