International Day for Street Children 2014 (CSCStreetChildren)

This year, the fourth International Day for Street Children will take place on 12th April, providing a platform for millions of street children around the world to speak out so that their rights cannot be ignored.

The Consortium for Street Children (CSC) launched International Day for Street Children in 2011, with help from its global corporate partner Aviva, to ensure that millions of street children around the globe have their voices heard. Every year since then support has grown, and the day is now celebrated in over 130 countries by street children and their champions.

Celebrated by street children, NGOs, celebrities, policy makers, businesses and individuals around the world, the Day now has high profile supporters including Steven Gerrard, Danny Boyle, John Major and Bianca Jagger.

How to get involved

“If the whole world was listening, what would you say?”

This is the question CSC is asking street children all around the world ahead of this year’s International Day for Street Children, giving them the platform to speak out about the issues that affect them.

CSC will be sharing their answers on their Twitter account @streetchildren with the dedicated hashtag #TweetForTheStreet.

Join the campaign today by using #TweetForTheStreet so the voices of street children can be heard to raise awareness and challenge misconceptions about street children.

CSC, with the involvement of major sponsors Aviva and HSBC, is working towards official UN recognition of International Day for Street Children.

If it becomes an official UN Day – like World Water Day or World AIDS Day – then vital pressure will be placed on governments around the world to recognise and support street children. It will mean street children will finally get the help and attention they deserve.

So far, over 6,000 people have shown their support for the International Day for Street Children by signing the petition here.

Join us in spreading the word so that these children will be impossible to ignore.
