We are Louder Together.
We focus on four key strategic areas: Advocacy, Research, Shared Learning and Capacity Building
CSC is continually expanding and currently has over 80 network members - made up of NGOs, individuals, academics and street children groups - working across 130 countries.

There are street-connected children all over the world. Although we don’t know the exact numbers, the statistics below are based on in-country head counts and national data. Knowing how many children live, work and spend time on the streets is vital for governments to develop policies and programmes that meet all street children’s needs.
