    Story

    PROVIDING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR SOME OF THE WORLD'S POOREST CHILDREN IN WEST AFRICA AND NEPAL.

    Street Child is a UK charity, established in 2008, that aims to create educational opportunity for some of the world's most vulnerable children. .
    WORKING WITH STREET CHILDREN
    Creating maximum impact upon the numbers of children whose lives are controlled by the streets. We work directly with street children in their own environment towards reunification with their families, reintroduction to education and the creation of a sustainable home-life for their ongoing upbringing. Between 2008 and 2012 we helped reunify around 2,000 children with their families.


    PROVIDING ACCESS TO EDUCATION
    Bringing access to education to some of the poorest rural locations in the world. Through teacher training and the establishment of educational facilities in areas where they are needed most, we work towards ensuring that out of school children have the chance to gain an education. Between 2010 and 2013 we helped more than 20,000 children gain access to education.

    This is a charity that the Church i attend (St Thomas - Norwich) have very close links with. I am raising funds for this charity but also to fund my five day mission trip where i will be working with this charity supporting street children, visiting the school's that have been built by the charity and also undertaking the massive challenge of running 26.21 miles!

      Thanks to you wonderful lot I've raised £195 of the £1500 I need. My training is going well though my legs are feeling it after a 10 mile run this morning! I've now got my flights booked and my visa approved so all seeming scarily real! Next job is to get my immunisations for travelling to Sierra Leone and obviously up the miles in training runs! If you see me running about Mulbarton give me a wave! Xx
