There are over 100 million street children ACROSS the world who go to sleep each night with no place to call home. Over 10,000 of these precious children are found in Uganda.
This is not right. It is not acceptable. It cannot continue.
#CommitToEquality with a coffee morning
Dwelling Places is working to change these shocking statistics for good. We support the International Day for Street children on 12th April every year. We #CommitToEquality for all children, will you commit with us? Host a coffee morning and raise awareness and funds for a great cause or simply donate to continue breaking the cycle of poverty and getting street connected children into education.
This year, to mark the IDSC we are asking our supporters to stand with street connected children worldwide by hosting a coffee morning or other event for Dwelling Places. Could you host an event? If you are interested then get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a resource pack filled with lots of things to make hosting your event easier that we will send you. All funds raised will go towards ensuring the former street connected children Dwelling Places works with are able to access education and fulfill their potential.
If you are unable to host an event, will you consider donating to our IDSC 2019 appeal towards Dwelling Places' Education fund?
We partner with the Consortium for Street Children (CSC), as one of their network members, to celebrate and promote the International Day for Street Children (IDSC). Marked on the 12th April every year, IDSC celebrates the lives of vulnerable children and recognises the projects they are part of. This day of advocacy and solidarity is a chance for the millions of street children around the world, and their champions, to speak out so that their voices are heard and their rights cannot be ignored.
At DPUK we want to do all we can to resource and equip our supporters mark and promote this important day.
We have produced a series of awareness raising kits for a range of ages; 5-7, 7-9, 10-12 & 12-18, as well as an A4 poster. These are designed for use in schools, church groups and even at home. They provide a wealth of background information on IDSC, street children and the work of Dwelling Places. Could you make use of these in your school, church or community group? We need the help of our supporters to get this information out there! They are all available for download on the resources section of our website.
We are #AlwaysStanding for Street Connected children. Will you join us? #CommitToEquality
