Every child we work with has a unique and complex set of needs but over time we’ve developed the Poverty Child toolkit to working with street and slum connected children.
An ambulance drives out to known areas every week to provide basic healthcare
A cordoned street becomes classroom for learning basic literacy and numeracy

Child specialists go out to connect with and offer their support to street children
Care staff find a good foster home or family to reintegrate the child back into society
A safe place to sleep at night for street children otherwise exposed to danger
