121 million children around the world cannot go to school. We're working to change that.

121 million children are not being given the chance to go to school. Millions more are in school but failing to learn. From building schools and training teachers, to connecting orphaned or abandoned children with families, and offering people the chance to generate their own income, our sustainable, holistic model is all about giving the world's poorest children a chance. 

Street Child started in Sierra Leone in 2008 working with a small number of street children.  Since then we have helped over 120,000 children to go to school and enabled 22,000 families to generate sustainable incomes so that their children can stay in education. During the Ebola crisis, Street Child helped over 20,000 Ebola orphans, providing emergency support and connecting them with families. Today, Street Child works in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, Uganda, Nepal, and Sri Lanka with a current emphasis on education in emergencies and girls' education.

We believe that every child deserves the right to be empowered through education. Working in some of the poorest areas in the world, we strive to ensure that every child has the chance to go to school and learn.


We carry out research in the countries where we work to truly understand the issues facing people.
