Street Child – One year on from the fall of Kabul
On the 15th August 2021, the fall of Kabul brought one of the biggest challenges Street Child has faced in their 25 years of operations in Afghanistan. One year on from this, Street Child have worked tirelessly to expand their reach through their 1,800+ team on the ground, and now supports 83,000+ children across their programmes every day, runs 13.65% of all community based education classes in the country, with 49% of students girls, and have spent more than $4.2 million this last year to make these feats possible.
Street Child have released a report which captures the astronomical need in Afghanistan, what Street Child has been doing to address challenges in the country and looks ahead to the strategic goals to ensure their response continues to meet the need of the affected population.
Street Child became Thomas Miller’s nominated corporate charity partner in January 2022, and we look forward to continuing our fundraising efforts to support them to ensure children are safe, in school and learning in some of the world’s toughest places.
