Description

Friends-International works with marginalised urban children and youth, their families and communities to become productive, independent citizens of their country. We do this by listening to and being guided by those who matter the most to us - the children and youth we work with everyday.

Friends-International has been assisting marginalized urban children and youth across the world since 1994. We now run and support projects for these children and their families in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Indonesia, Honduras, Mexico, Egypt and Myanmar.

Friends-International and its partners reach out to over 50 000 marginalised young people -particularly street children and youth – each year. We offer a range of comprehensive services as part of our holistic approach to assisting children and their families to improve their lives.

VISION

Together, we protect marginalized urban children and youth and with them create innovative and exciting opportunities to build their futures.

MISSION

Friends-International is a social enterprise that works with and for marginalized urban children and youth and their families to build their futures by:

  • protecting urban children and youth from all forms of abuse within the scope of the International Convention of the Rights of the Child;
  • reintegrating marginalized urban children and youth so they become actively involved in the development of their society;
  • preventing marginalized urban children and youth from engaging in risky behavior and/or dangerous situations that compromise their futures;
  • improving the way organizations work by promoting innovative and effective approaches with the active participation of the children and youth;
  • influencing all tiers of society to provide supportive environments and adopt positive behavior changes.

We achieve this by developing creative, innovative and holistic programs as well as building networks and establishing solid support services within organizations, communities and in all levels of society.
