The street outreach work in Guatemala City helps to identify and engage with vulnerable street-connected children and provide them with emergency food, shelter and medical treatment. Throughout the year, a committed team of project staff and volunteers work tirelessly to visit children on the streets in some of the city’s most dangerous areas. It’s during these visits that the team can meet children’s immediate and often urgent needs. It also gives them the opportunity to start to build relationships with the children and young people better by learning about their backgrounds and the circumstances that led them to a life on the streets. Only then can the team start to support and encourage children to leave the streets for good.
