"If the whole world was listening, what would you say?"
This is the question we're asking street children all around the world this year on International Day for Street Children, giving them the platform to speak out about the issues that affect them. With official UN recognition of the Day, they will be impossible to ignore. You can play a part in making this happen by adding your name to the petition calling on the UN to recognise and adopt the day. You can sign the petition on our Homepage.
About the Day
The day is celebrated by street children, NGOs, celebrities, policy makers, businesses and individuals around the world and over the last two years word has spread and support for the day has grown.
High profile supporters include Steven Gerrard, Danny Boyle, John Major and Bianca Jagger.
The International Day for Street Children was launched in 2011 by the Consortium for Street Children (CSC), the leading international network dedicated to realising the rights of street children worldwide. However the day is not owned by any one organisation and ultimately the aim is that the United Nations adopt and recognise it as a UN day.
