> Street Children

The UN has reported that an estimated 385 million children live in extreme poverty. Yet street children are one of the world’s most invisible populations. They often lack the necessities they need to survive and thrive. Such as, food, sanitation, education, healthcare and shelter. Although many street children show remarkable resilience in the face of unspeakable hardships, many studies show their sense of well-being to be generally low. Street-children often endure depression, anxiety and trauma, which then may lead to substance abuse and a risk of suicide.

READ Foundation has established drop-in centres as a shelter for children in need. This protects them from the dangers of child labour, drugs and sexual exploitation. Our staff are well-equipped with the skills and expertise to support and protect them.

Help us continue providing that safe space.
