Change the Life of a Child
Children who live on the street do not know where or how they will find their next meal. They don’t know where they will be spending the night. They suffer from malnutrition, exploitation, and abuse. Many have been totally abandoned, and others have families, but are not being protected, supported, educated, or cared for by parents.
For $40 a month, you can emancipate, educate, and empower one of these children. Your sponsorship will provide them with a birth certificate, a home, food, clothing, and schooling. You will come to know their name and their story, and then, you can work with them to rewrite their story, to let them know that they are loved and valued. Your sponsorship will empower them and give them the chance to reach their full potential in life.

Children on the street are those who are still in contact with their families, but due to abuse at home, parents who do not protect and provide for them, or poverty, they beg or work on the streets to help their families survive.
Children of the street actually live on the street, outside of a normal family environment. Many have been abandoned, and others have run away from home, often in response to psychological, physical or sexual abuse.
Most of the street children of the world lose contact with school and other societal institutions, and many become victims of human trafficking, syndicate control, commercial sexual exploitation, drug abuse, and crime.
Poverty, natural disasters, war and political unrest, domestic violence and breakdown of families, sexual, physical or emotional abuse, substance abuse and human trafficking are all causes of this worldwide street children epidemic. The three-fold solution of emancipation, education, and empowerment of these children begins with you.
