Street’s Child’s vision is a world where the every child has access to education. 121 million school-aged children are currently out of education world-wide, mainly in the world’s poorest, most fragile and disaster-hit countries. Millions more children are in school but failing to learn. These children are denied their right to education and life opportunities. Street Child believes that achieving universal basic education is the single greatest step that can be taken towards the elimination of global poverty. Street Child prides itself on being willing to where others won’t, including remote, hard-to-reach areas and fragile, disaster-affected states. We recognise that the barriers to education are complex and interlinked, and 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 learning crisis.
