Around the world 100 million children live on the streets. In South Africa alone it is thought there are 250,000 young people supporting themselves without anywhere to call home.

This Slum Survivor guide focuses on the lives of several street children from South Africa. The challenges you face over the course of a few hours will highlight the insecurity and poverty they face on a daily basis.

Not only will you be raising awareness of these issues, but you’ll also be helping to raise money for projects working in poor communities around the world! Download the guides and info below for all the info you need to get started!

The issues…
Street children face loads of issues. They may live on the streets because their parents have died, or their families just can’t afford to support them. Beyond that there is a daily struggle to earn money to pay for food. Furthermore, living on the streets exposes these young people to crime, violence and prejudice. The new Slum Survivor guide will focus on these issues and help to raise money and awareness for change.
