Street Child believes that every child deserves the chance to go to school and learn.

We partner with local organisations and communities to deliver our locally rooted programmes, using evidence to drive learning and the refinement and scale up of programmes to create maximum impact for the most children at the lowest cost. We pride ourselves on being willing to go to the world’s toughest places where others won’t, including remote, hard-to-reach areas and fragile, disaster-affected states across sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Since 2008 we have helped over 500,000 children to go to school and learn and supported over 33,000 caregivers to set up businesses so they can afford the cost of educating their children.
