Consortium for Street Children Inc.

Consortium for Street Children Inc. (CSC Inc.) is a non-profit organisation, registered in the US with an independent board of directors.

What we do

We work as part of a global alliance with governments, NGOs, policy makers, researchers, charities and businesses, to build a world where street-connected children and homeless youth are treated equally; have the right to be heard; and have the right to life, survival and development.

Street children are children who depend on the streets for their survival – whether they live on the streets, work on the streets, have support networks on the streets, or a combination of the three.

About street children

We want to change the world for street children and homeless youth by:

  1. Ensuring they have the same access to services, resources, care and opportunities that other children have
  2. Amplifying street children’s voices so they can make their views known
  3. Putting an end to the discrimination street-connected children around the world face on a daily basis

Find out more about our work in the wider movement coordinated by Consortium for Street Children UK to:

  • Support, grow and seek funding for a connected global network
  • Create shared learning and research
  • Guide policy and influence decision makers
