Street Child is a charity dedicated to empowering some of the most vulnerable children in the world by giving them the chance to go to school, and giving their families the sustainable means to keep them there.
121 million school-aged children are currently out of education worldwide, mainly in the world’s poorest, most fragile and disaster-hit countries.
Millions more children are in school but failing to learn. Street Child recognizes that the barriers to education are complex and interlinked, and our projects focus on a combination of education, child protection and livelihoods support to address the social, economic and structural issues that underpin today’s learning crisis.
We are looking for people with relevant experience to undertake a voluntary entrepreneurial role.
Street Child Commercial was established in Sierra Leone in 2011 as a unique fundraising stream whereby a series of shops and café bars create a sustainable source of profit which is re-invested in our projects in the country.
Street Child Commercial is now seeking new avenues for expansion and growth of profits in both existing and new enterprises in Sierra Leone and Uganda.
