Situation

121 million school-aged children are currently out of education world-wide, mainly in the world’s poorest, most fragile and disaster-hit countries. Millions more children are in school but failing to learn. These children are denied their right to education and life opportunities. Street Child believes that achieving universal basic education is the single greatest step that can be taken towards the elimination of global poverty.

Solution

Street Child are proud to announce our most ambitious goal ever: an unprecedented initiative to transform learning prospects in 1,000 schools, for over 100,000 children, in rural parts of Sierra Leone, by the year 2023. We will seek to address the calamity of entire generations growing up in villages where no effective education provision exists and for whom very minimal, if any support, is presently available – a state of affairs, which, tragically, exits in hundreds of villages
