Feedback on our partner CONACMI in Guatemala

We attribute our success to the unique adaptive process we use. Monthly reviews of narrative and empirical data ensure our programmes continue to have the biggest impact on the lives of the children we support.

In the last year we’ve done so much to change the lives of street children around the world. But there’s more to do.
