Today (12 April 2012) marks the second International Day for Street Children. The day is celebrated across the world to give a voice to street children. This year the focus is on ‘challenging perceptions’ to encourage people to think about what they know about street children. Sadly, we know the answer is not enough.
Two British development workers are establishing a project to support the growing number of street children in war-torn Congo, cooperating with the Anglican Church. It will be based in Lubumbashi, the country's second city.
