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.
Last year, we used International Day for Street Children to celebrate the mandate we received from the United Nations. Street-connected children’s rights were finally, after years of work from our Network, recognised and explained.
Despite this, street-connected children continue to be discriminated against, abused, and are often unable to go to school, see a doctor, or even seek justice when harmed. Armed with this mandate from the UN, we cannot allow this to happen anymore.
International Women's Day 2018
ChildHope is constantly inspired by women and children around the world that face injustice and abuse on a daily basis but work so hard to change their lives for the better. For this year's International Women’s Day, we’d like to share with you the story of Dembe, who has tackled so many challenges in her life and is a role model to other women.
World NGO Day
On World NGO day we celebrate the important work of NGOs across the world – small and large, national and international – all of whom operate in diverse and often difficult contexts to improve the lives of marginalised and vulnerable communities. For ChildHope this means shining a light on our partners who are the real unsung heroes...
