Short description:
Street Kids International is a global non-profit organization that helps street kids learn to support themselves and make healthy, educated decisions that positively impact their lives. Through our work we raise awareness about the needs and rights of street youth, and develop the skills of frontline workers who support these young people.
It teams with youth workers to develop locally relevant, innovative workshops using award winning animations that engage kids about sexual health, drug use and youth entrepreneurship.
