If governments, NGOs, policy makers and businesses join forces, we can build a world where street-connected children have their rights protected, and access to essential services.

A life changing opportunity

With near universal ratification, the Child Rights Convention outlines the obligations that UN member states have towards all children.  In 2017, CSC secured landmark recognition from the UN that all governments must give specific consideration to how they meet these obligations to street-connected children, guaranteeing them equal access to the same rights. Working with the UN Child Rights Committee and with input from over 1,000 street children, we assisted the Child Rights Committee to write this guidance outlining the steps that governments need to take.

To turn words into action we must ensure that the UN directive is turned into a reality for street children – a world where they are able to lead safe and secure lives, free to fulfil their potential and change their stories.

We would like to thank our partners, who have provided generous and invaluable support towards our fight for street-connected children’s rights.

Work with us

The next critical step is to put the UN guidance into action around the world.  It’s a huge undertaking but by working together we can change the world for street-connected children.
