    The volatile political situation in Burundi is having a profound effect on our partner New Generation and the work they do with street children. As a result we have launched an emergency appeal to raise £4,000 to help them at this difficult time.

    How you can get involved >


    We're part of NEW GENERATION in BURUNDI. Street Action support us in many ways. We don't want to live on the streets and we want to be part of a movement that sees no child living on the streets.

    How you can get involved >


    Street Action is a small charity with no full-time staff but a very committed trustee board and network of supporters. Join us and you will see your money, time or volunteering have a very direct impact on the lives of street children in Africa.

    How you can get involved >


    A team of 16 cyclists (and 1 support van driver) rode over 300 miles through 6 countries and raised over £18,000 for Street Action. Some of that money has gone to open a new cafe, run by our partner in Burundi, with profits used to feed street children in the city.

    How you can get involved >

Street Action is a British charity that partners with local agencies in Africa who work
directly with street children. You can support our work in a number of meaningful ways.


Whilst we work with our partners in different ways, money underpins most of the work we do.
