About Street Child

Street Child is one of the world’s fastest-growing international children’s charities. Established in 2008, we believe that every child deserves to be safe, in school, and learning especially in low resource environments and emergencies. We work with an expanding network of 150+ local organizations. A focus on the power and purpose of inspirational local level organizations sits at the heart of all we do – and we have done so since our first partnership in Sierra Leone in 2008. Today Street Child works across more than 26 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, South America, the Midde East and Asia and Europe. We are experts in education, economic empowerment, and protection programming.

Our interventions are integrated to confront challenges, assuring safety as we afford access to schooling. We seek out situations where there are gaps between significant need, in-time assistance and available funding and, as such, are often one of the only organizations supporting children in these tough circumstances. We prioritize children in the most marginalized populations and those most likely to be left behind.

Background

Street Child believes that every child deserves the chance to go to school and learn. Our projects focus on a combination of education, child protection and livelihood support to address the social, economic and structural issues that underpin today’s education crisis. 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 250,000 children to go to school and learn and supported over 25,000 families to set up businesses so that they may afford the cost of educating their children.

Our work as Street Child of Cameroon in the aforementioned domains is deliberate and intentional and we aim to scale up our operations in the field by ensuring that more and more children return to normal lives by living in a safe environment, reunited with their families, attending school and protected against violence, sexual exploitation and other social vices. We work with local organizations and the government to overcome the barriers that undermine the development and wellbeing of children, ensuring parents and caregivers have financial resources and livelihoods to sustain the education of their children and providing child protection services. Street Child of Cameroon has ambitions to expand beyond its current regions of intervention is a reliable partner for UNICEF, FIFA, Book Aid international, the UEFA Foundation and other institutional donors, among others.
