Impact of this experience
You’ll support representatives of Street Child looking to make a difference in children's education in West Africa whilst you explore Barceloneta and get an endorphin rush!
Street Child España is a sister NGO of Street Child UK. They aspire to improve the lives of the most vulnerable children and their families in Western Africa and Asia by increasing their access to an education and a brighter future.
We believe that every child deserves the right to safety and to be empowered through education. Working in some of the poorest areas in the world, we strive to ensure that every child has the chance to go to school and learn.
Whether it's building schools, training teachers, distributing business grant or helping orphans and street children, all our projects aim to create stable living opportunities for vulnerable children in the world.
Street Child sees education as one of the most important pillars of society. Investing in education is investing in the future!
