This Christmas give street children in Kisumu, Kenya, access to a safe place, food, counselling and education.
Life on the streets is dirty, violent and short. Street children are the target of human trafficking and abuse, such as rape and labour exploitation. Without an education, street children also have little prospects for a better future.
An estimated 1,000 street children live in Kisumu and the average life expectancy of a youth who has been living on the streets of Kisumu is just 28.
“Street children are stigmatized as thieves, beggars, mad and dirty… but really they are just scared.” Philip Nyangara, outreach worker
Together let’s give street children the protection and inspiration they deserve.
Chance for Childhood has won a place on the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign. This is a great opportunity to protect and care for street children in Kenya AND have twice the impact!
