There are an estimated 100 million street children globally. Accra, the capital of Ghana, alone is home to an estimated 60,000 street children.
Street children are vulnerable to abuse, neglect and exploitation – and are often deprived of an education that could lift them out of poverty. But they still have big dreams – and the books you send this Christmas will offer them a safe haven, the opportunity to learn and the tools to reach their dreams.
Since 2018, we have sent 21,525 books to support street children across Africa. Thanks to you, thousands of vulnerable children are now reading. But so many more still need access to books – and every £2 you give will send another book.
