The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) provides the foundation to our rights-based approach to working with vulnerable children.
To have the greatest impact on every level, we work with street children in three separate stages of their journey: prevention; intervention; and reintegration.
Vulnerable children and families sometimes need help. Toybox supports projects where the child or family are in danger of becoming reliant on the street. It is easier to help a child before they become deeply dependent to the street meaning our chances of keeping children off the streets are much higher.
In a crisis, children and young people on the streets need direct help and they need it quickly. We support children who are living and/or working on the streets with practical and urgent support as well as helping to build their confidence to leave the streets.
Children living on the streets regularly face extreme hardships which are unpredictable and constantly changing. Our innovative approach to programme management ensures we’re able to adapt to meet these changes and continue to provide the support most needed.
