As an organisation our primary aim is to enable and create positive sustainable change in the lives of children living alone and at risk on the streets. Our ‘3 Step Change Agenda’ embodies our vision of real change being achieved through success in three interwoven, inextricable areas:
1. Meeting the immediate needs of children on the streets
2. Shifting local perception3. Holding governments responsible
