StreetInvest exists to put trustworthy adults into the lives of the hardest to reach and most excluded street-connected children. These adults contribute to their growth and development and reduce stigma and discrimination towards them through street work: a practice based on building empowering relationships of trust with street children, where they are. This is the first critical step in understanding who they are, what they need and how best to support them.
For some children, the streets are their workplace; others their playground; others their home. No child has the same story.
What millions street children do share are common experiences of sexual and physical abuse, of being cast out from their communities and denied the right to education, basic care and a voice. StreetInvest exists for these children.
StreetInvest is an International Development NGO which was founded in the UK in 2008. We now host a global network of organisations and individuals who share our vision of putting a trustworthy adult into the life of every street-connected child.
Together we are helping street-connected children to grow and develop so that they can reach their potential, and reduce the abuse and discrimination that they suffer.
We do this by promoting and supporting a distinct form of youth work called street work, which can be the first step to positive change in a young person’s life.
It costs only £1. 00 to enable a street worker to support one more street child in the poorest countries we work in, for one more month.
