Institutional donors and foundations
High impact projects that change the outcome for street children
Funding from our generous trusts, institutional donors, foundations, other charities and NGOs is the lifeblood that enables our network of organisations to deliver projects around the world.
We connect like-minded funders with our delivery partners to manage appropriate funding of projects, promote the work of our donors and evaluate the impact and outcomes.
We know that our funders want to know how their money is being spent and what it has achieved.
Red Nose Day USA: Keeping street-connected children safe
In 2019, CSC, working with Red Nose Day, completed our joint ‘Keeping street-connected children safe’ project. We funded innovative direct-service delivery projects for street children through our partners Gurises Unidos in Uruguay, Bahay Tuluyan in the Philippines, CESIP in Peru, Voice of Children in Nepal, S.A.L.V.E. International in Uganda and CHETNA in India.
Red Nose Day USA also funds our global ‘4 Steps to Equality’ campaign, our ‘Digitally Connecting Street Children’ project with partners across the world, and our pioneering work in Uruguay, helping the government to adopt the General Comment No. 21 on Children in Street Situations.
Red Nose Day remains a committed partner and will continue with us for another two-year project for 2020-21.
