Our partners work alongside this group to change their attitudes towards education, to promote its importance as well as ensuring they have the financial means to send their children to school and to not rely on them as income generators.
Our partners work with the wider community challenging attitudes that hinder street children from gaining an education. This can range from meeting with traditional leaders, religious leaders, teachers and headteachers – working to ensure that street children are not facing barriers to achieving educational attainment.
Many street children, especially girls, face violence on a daily basis in school. Our partners work with the schools and pupils providing training on Child Protection, Child Rights and positive discipline methods.
