Providing help for street children isn't easy. Many are traumatised by their life on the street or the experience that put them there in the first place. They are often alienated, have low self-esteem, and are wary of accepting help. Someone once said, "You can take the child out of the streets, but you can't take the streets out of the child".

Pavement Project provides a tried and tested way for workers to encourage children to talk about their deep-seated fears and hurts. Through prayer and Bible stories, children can receive healing and affirmation. Workers say that this allows them to understand the child in a much deeper way than before, and to draw alongside them more effectively. Pavement Project demonstrates the power of the Bible's life words that speak of encounter with Jesus.

SGM Lifewords is celebrating a decade of changing the future for children-at-risk.

Since its launch, this unique Bible-based counselling process has been used with street children in Brazil, and child soldiers in Colombia. It's been used to counsel HIV positive children in Africa, and victims of abuse in India. It's built a community of workers, children, organisations, and churches all sharing the Bible's words of hope, of possibility, and of change.
