Street Child is a small grass-roots organisation working to make a massive difference to the lives of street children in Western Africa. We are a small and mighty team based in London and Sierra Leone with delivery partners in Sierra Leone and we are also expanding our reach to Liberia and Cameroon.
Put simply we are working to reach as many street children as possible, reunite them with their families and reintroduce them into education. We also work on the institution side of things by facilitating teacher training, building new schools and community education programmes and working with families to ensure a bright, independent and sustainable future. So far, we have helped well over 10,000 children to gain access to education in Sierra Leone.
We also organised the first and second EVER Sierra Leone Marathon in 2012 and 2013 bringing in hundreds of worldwide international runners and offering a platform for thousands of local athletes - including the President of Sierra Leone himself!
