Sign up for a place on the first Building with Bamboo shared learning panel on 21st June.
Do you want to be part of a community that generates knowledge, improves interventions and creates sustainable change for street children?
Building with Bamboo is our new international learning project, in partnership with Oak Foundation, exploring how resilience-based approaches can improve outcomes for street-connected children exposed to sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.
