We are really proud to be supporting railway children. Their passion is for street level intervention, so they can reach kids as quickly as possible before their situations get worse.
They have helped over 270,000 children so far and they have projects in the UK, Africa and India, at a street community and government level.
We will be announcing joint competitions and be talking about their work very soon, but for now here is a summary of their work and please check out their site when you can.
"We believe in a world where no child ever has to live on the streets."
Railway Children provide protection and opportunity for children with nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to. Every year thousands of children across the UK, India and East Africa run away or are forced to leave homes that have become unbearable through poverty, abuse, violence and neglect. Reaching a child as soon as possible is crucial to getting to children on the streets before an abuser can, and before they become entrenched in street life. We race to get to children before the streets get to them.
