> 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, studies show their sense of well-being is generally low. Street children often endure depression, anxiety, and trauma, which may lead to substance abuse and a risk of suicide.
READ Foundation has established drop-in centres as shelters for children in need. This protects them from the dangers of child labour, drugs, and sexual exploitation. Our staff is well-equipped with the skills and expertise to support and protect them.
