Send books to street children

Every £2 you donate sends another brand new book

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.

Help more children follow in Mary's footsteps

Mary is the first in her family to learn to read - and she loves the books supporters like you have helped to send. This is her story.


Mary reads every day in her local library and is thriving in school thanks in large part of the support of our partners in Accra, Ghana, the Street Children Empowerment Foundation.

But there are so many children like Mary who still have no books. Their parents are desperate to give them a brighter future, but they need your help.

I didn’t have books as a child so I can’t read. I’m so happy my twins can read. They have already gotten to a level I didn’t get to. Books are really important for their future. I want them to go far.
Matilda, Richard and Richardson’s mother
