We are proud to announce that this year we have been accepted for the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2020, the UK’s biggest match funding campaign.

The project

Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on street children – on their health, safety, wellbeing, and ability to earn money.

They have been forced to keep off the streets and many have faced unfair treatment from the justice system. Many are unable to work and earn money for food and survival. The outreach services they rely on are closed or oversubscribed, and shelters are overcrowded.

Your support can help them survive and recover.

How it works

During the live week when the Christmas Challenge is running (midday 1st December to midday 8th December) all of the donations you make on the Big Give platform will be doubled. In other words, if you donate £20, we will get £40 – the other half matched by our amazing supporters who have pledged £6,250 for the whole campaign.

This means that if during the live week, our donations reach our target of £6,250, Consortium for Street Children will receive double that amount: £12,500. One donation, twice the impact!

This amount will be used to finance our project to provide cheap, sustainable training solutions for street children and charity workers who help them to advocate for their rights.

If you would like to support us during the Big Give Christmas Challenge week (1-8 December), please leave your email with us and we will send you a friendly reminder to donate once the campaign goes live.

The difference you will make

With your help, we can keep street children safe and well throughout this crisis and beyond. We will:

  • Help street children stay safe from Covid-19 and deal with the impact of the pandemic on their lives through online learning and educational activities, in language they can understand.
  • Further develop an interactive digital platform where street children can connect with one another in a safe environment, helping to combat their isolation and share experiences of how they are overcoming the obstacles they face.
