Our goal is to help create opportunities through education for some of the most vulnerable children in the world. We work directly with street children in their own environment towards reunification with their families, reintroduction to education & the creation of a sustainable home-life for their ongoing upbringing. From 2010 to 2012 we helped more than 10,000 children gain access to education.

We have to be quick on the ball with this one as its not too far away however, if you're looking for an inspiring adventure then this is the opportunity for you! Here is a bit more info...
Who? You! and Street Child
What? Full 26 mile marathon or 10k
Where? Monrovia, Liberia
When? Sunday 25th August 2013
Why? For the challenge! To really see the difference you can make And to become a Founding Member of Street Child Liberia
The event is organised independent to the charity but as we are about to begin a project in Monrovia we thought it would be the perfect launch pad to help start our work in the Liberian Capital.
The Street Child Liberia Marathon team will be the founding members of Street Child Liberia – instrumental in kick-starting our work there and the very first of Street Child's supporters to see the project first-hand.
You will come to Monrovia for a few days before/after the race (exact dates flexible) to see the project that we are just starting, meet the kids who so desperately need our support.
The funds raised by the Street Child Liberia Marathon Team will be used immediately to get these children off of the streets and into school by September. Funding raised from the marathon will enable us to pay their schools fees and lift them from a life of poverty and abuse to being in safe family homes and school again.
Cost wise – Street Child will cover the teams race entrance fees and facilitate your movement around Monrovia, we ask that team members cover the cost of their flights and in-country expense (food and accommodation).
This is an awesome opportunity – we would LOVE to have you be a part of this exciting new venture!
