Street Child - Who We Are: We are a registered UK charity with offices in the UK and Europe. We believe that access to education is the best way to help people out of poverty. We began working in 2008 and since then we have helped over 200,000 children access education and 15,000 families set up businesses to become self sufficient. We believe that development should be locally driven and sustainable. Therefore, all our projects are carried out by local organisations and actors, with Street Child providing funds, assistance and external knowledge.
International Volunteering Opportunities: We offer a range of volunteering and internship positions across Africa (Sierra Leone, Liberia, Uganda) and Asia (Sri Lanka, Nepal). If you are interested in pursuing a career in International Development, Communications or Business Development; then these positions are a fantastic opportunity to gain real work experience, make your CV stand out and learn how NGOs work and administer their programmes, while leaving a lasting positive impact. Positions include projects assistant, project researcher, communications volunteer, business development volunteer and other more specialised positions. We also offer dissertation research roles, we ask students to present their thesis to Street Child first, and then together we will see if this is achievable.
We ask all our volunteers for a fundraising commitment. We are NOT a voluntourism company and do NOT ask for payment. Rather, we ask for fundraising to raise money for our projects and to increase the exposure of Street Child. We set each volunteer the challenge of raising €1200. We understand this is a lot of money, however you will be assisted by our expert EU team from start to finish and once you begin you will realise how quickly you reach your target.

We look forward to hearing from you and arranging a way of presenting our opportunities to your students, in particular advertising our programmes through any publications your association has, appearing on your career platform and attending one of your career events.
