Equality for Street Children Starts Here
International Day for Street Children is the one day a year street-connected children have a platform to tell the world their stories, experiences and needs.
Too often, street-connected children are ignored and marginalised, and every year, we work together to demonstrate the fantastic work being done globally to make street-connected children a priority on national and global agendas.
