Who We Are and What We Do
The Consortium for Street Children (CSC) is a global network that exists to give street children a voice, promote their rights and improve their lives. We do this through our focus on Advocacy, Research and Development.
We seek to be the leading international network dedicated to realising the rights of street children worldwide.
CSC has identified four values that shape the way we work and define our organisational aspirations:
We will actively challenge common misconceptions of street children. Where change is necessary, we will challenge the status quo to ensure policies and practices recognise them. We will challenge our network and each other to strive for the realisation of street children’s rights.
With our network, we will work hard to identify innovative solutions that address the issues faced by street children. Through leveraging and building on our knowledge we will progress and improve ways of achieving the realisation of street children’s rights.
We seek to bring people together and create a louder collective voice for street children. By working collaboratively, and through sharing expertise, we will have more impact. It is vital that street children are able to have their say in order to influence change.
We will be transparent and honest in everything we do. We are a trusted partner for our network and are accountable for delivering our strategy. We are accountable to street children and promise to shine a light on the issues that affect them. We believe others should be held accountable for their actions.
