Street Child UK

When Street Child began its work, Sierra Leone was the poorest country in the world [UN World Poverty Index 2008]. Their first project supported street children by finding them a safe home and helping them to go to school. They now focus on increasing access to education – including building schools training teachers and empowering mothers to setup businesses so they can afford to send their children to school.

When the Ebola crisis hit in 2014, Street Child was already working in 32 locations across Sierra Leone and in Monrovia, Liberia. Street Child led the way in helping Ebola’s orphans to find families to support them and - once schools reopened - helping them to return to school.

In 2016 Street Child began a new focus on girls' education. Across Sierra Leone and Liberia they helped 10,000 girls gain access to education and tackling the barriers to girls' education including poverty, teenage pregnancy, early marriage, loss of a caregiver and a lack of support from adults and the community.

In late 2018 Street Child launched their 'Count Me In' campaign aiming to provide more children across the world with access to education and the resources they need to learn ensuring every child has the best chance of success.

The charity now works not only in Sierra Leone, but also across Africa in - Liberia, Nigeria, Uganda, Burundi & the Democratic Republic of Congo. They also work in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh & Afghanistan.

We have a strong relationship with Street Child and have been lucky enough to see the amazing work they do on the ground in Sierra Leone first hand. By travelling to Sierra Leone and experiencing the marathon there you will have the chance to see their amazing work.
