Let us see what we can do so that every street connected child, every child sleeping on the street, every child working on the street, has at least one person to turn to.

Street children often spend their lives in the shadows.

They are excluded – from essential services, from government policy, and even from data.

The spaces they inhabit may be inappropriate, even dangerous, but are out of sight.

Frontline workers meet street children in these shadowy spaces, taking the time to get to know their lives and experiences.

They help to explore the individual solutions a child might need, and provide hope for a brighter future.

This International Day for Street Children, we recognise frontline workers who take the time to turn the spotlight on street children, and give them the tools they need to step out of the shadows. Will you help us?
