About us:

Street Child is a major child-focused development agency, specializing in Sierra Leone and Liberia and has established itself as a leading organization providing quality and sustainable education to thousands of children. Managed out of our London headquarters, we have supported over 50,000 children to access education in the last five years. We have launched a very exiting new phase in Street Child’s development; the expansion into other European regions like the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, France and Spain.

At Street Child, we are very proud of our volunteer-based approach, keeping overheads low so that as much funding as possible can go to our projects in West Africa. We are very lucky to have fantastic volunteers committed to our cause and are now looking for an innovative individual to support the expansion, marketing and fundraising in these new regions.
