Keeping Street-Connected Children Safe

Our partnership with Red Nose Day USA explores innovative approaches to keep street-connected children safe.

About the project

CSC have been working in partnership with Red Nose Day USA since 2017, on our ‘Keeping Street Connected Children Safe’ project. This project has funded innovative direct-service delivery projects for street children across Asia, South America and Africa, and our pioneering work in Uruguay, helping the Government of Uruguay to become the first adopter of the General Comment No. 21 on Street Children. Through this grant, we have also launched our global ‘4 Steps to Equality’ campaign, our digital one stop shop, celebrated annually on International Day for Street Children, published our Advocacy in Action Guide and child-friendly general comment guides for our network, and both launched our ‘Digitally Connecting Street Children’ project, and our annual shared-learning conference with partners across the world.

Whats new?

Our 2020 – 2021 grant with Red Nose Day will allow CSC to sub-grant to 8 organisations across the globe, working directly with street connected children to deliver vital services on the ground, adapting this work to the unprecedented COVID-19 context, and advocating and campaigning for the street children they work with and for. CSC will support these grantee partners and the wider CSC network on advocacy with local and national government structures, and at the international UN level, delivering a set of ‘training the trainer’ advocacy training across the globe and launching our e-learning course for the whole network. Additionally, CSC will deliver International Day for Street Children, the CSC Annual Conference to allow for global learning exchanges, and continue to work on our digitally connecting street children project with a number of partners.

Our pioneering digital work

Through an ongoing series of world-first workshops, street children will be able to safely share their experiences, insights, advice and dreams with other street children around the world via our digital platform. Each workshop is designed around a topic that is important for street children’s rights, and will feature videos, messages and photos that other street children can interact with. For the safeguarding of the children involved in the project, this part of the project requires additional logins. If you’d like to be involved in this project, please contact our network team to apply for this access: network@streetchildren.org
