Make it work: jobs hold key to achieving development goals, says UN report
A big Christmas thank you to boys from The Mall School who ran a stall at the school fair and raised £240 for street children!
We know it requires organisation and commitment to make this happen and we wanted everyone to know how much it means to us as well, of course, as the street children we support.
Wondering where your money goes? Read about the work you support:
Tomorrow is Thames Ditton Farmers Market - head over to see Maud at HJC in the Hight Street for hot drinks and home-made cakes! She's fundraising for street children and we think she's amazing.
Your support changes lives........
Vocational training enables young people to earn an income to support themselves and their family
How can one of our Kits for Kids change a life? Well, you could be supporting quality football training and mentoring for children at risk of turning to the street, or you could be providing young children with a chance to succeed at school and a great deal of fun! Maybe you could be enabling young women to be trained in hairdressing so they can be financially independent, or perhaps you could even enable women to start their own businesses.
Huge congratulations and thanks to Annemarie Williams on completing the New York marathon and raising money for street children.
She says "I can honestly say it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Thinking about the charity and the fundraising was one of the things that kept me going when it got really tough."
Fantastic to have such an amazing supporter!!
Getting ready for Consortium for Street Children's research conference next month!
What's so interesting? yep - it's an excel template for cash flow! Our partners want to become more sustainable.
This is the hair salon at one of our Zambian partners - its a double whammy of goodness!
Girls and young women learn a practical skill to become independent, and money from paying customers supports the project, making our partner more self-sufficient. What's not to like!
