Retrak works with street children in Africa to give them a real alternative to life on the street. Our mission is to transform the lives of highly vulnerable children, preserve families and empower communities to give each of them a voice. Our vision is a world where no child is forced to live on the street. We enable street children to return to life in a caring and stable family environment, either with their own family, a foster family or by living independently in the community.
Retrak has been working with ‘full-time’ street children for over 18 years, helping them to achieve their potential and break away from the vicious cycle of poverty and homelessness. Our outreach programme is carried out through street visits, food, sporting activities and medical care, including providing tools to children on an individual basis to help them overcome their past, reintegrate into society and family life and embrace the future. We also work with communities to do prevention work to stop children from being pushed onto the streets.
A blanket will keep a child warm overnight at our emergency shelter.
