StreetInvest was established in 2008 based on over two decades of previous experience to improve the lives of street children - one of the most neglected and vulnerable groups in society.
Street children are often alone, fending for themselves with no-one to guide them. StreetInvest trains Street Workers to be the trustworthy adult in the children’s lives. The Street Workers provide increased protection for the children on the street and improve their life chances. They listen and respond to their hopes and concerns, guide them towards rebuilding family and community links, and help them explore education and better health options. StreetInvest equips
Street Workers to deliver the biggest improvement in the lives of street children.
Our approach - based on more than two decades of on-the-ground experience - is proven to have a measurable impact on the quality of street children’s lives.
Once trained, Street Workers can train others to work with street children. This pyramid training model means we can rapidly and cost-effectively expand our influence to reach ever larger numbers of street children.
StreetInvest helps 35,000 children a year across Africa, Asia and Europe and has an ambition to extend its reach to 145,000 children over the next three years.
StreetInvest’s goal is for every street child to have a trustworthy adult in their lives, helping them to fulfil their potential.
