We believe that education is one of the most powerful ways in which to help reduce poverty and inequality

Senior Community Manager, HSBC

HSBC co-supported our Global Resource Centre, a free-to-use online library containing a rapidly growing collection of material on street children, including reports, research, articles, toolkits, briefings and case studies, from some of the world’s leading experts and organizations.

The site also allows CSC network members to keep up to date with all the latest literature on street children, share learning and good practice and collaborate on projects.

In 2013 HSBC supported the International Day for Street Children, alongside Aviva and Tesco, through a creative poster and advertising campaign. Billboard posters were displayed in London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Manchester, Sheffield and an advert ran in the Metro newspaper promoting the day.

HSBC’s Senior Community Manager Lorraine Thomas says: “We believe that education is one of the most powerful ways in which to help reduce poverty and inequality, which is why we started Future First, now in 60 countries, to help disadvantaged young people access education. We are delighted to continue our support of the ‘Shared Learning Hub'”
