Railway Children works to help street children, a very important mission, in my opinion. No child should live unprotected and vulnerable with no home. Anywhere in the world.
Vision: A world of protection and opportunity for children living alone and at risk on the streets.
In the UK, society often denies their existence, and in other countries the problem is so prevalent that it has become ‘normal’.
They run away or are forced to leave homes where they suffer poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. They find themselves living on the streets because there is nowhere else to go and no one left to turn to. The problems they face on the streets are often even worse than those they endured at home. Every day we fight to change their story.
Railway Children race to reach children as soon as they arrive on the streets and intervene before an abuser can. Our pioneering work enables us to get to street children before the streets get to them.
Please read their site and support them. Even one new supporter will help their cause.
