With the knowledge that a family set up is the most ideal place for children to grow up, AfCiC is working with the whole family instead of individuals.
Factors that drive children to the streets are not limited to some children in a family and these results to more than one child living/and working on the streets.Parents to these children are mainly casual labourers with low income. AfCiC’s new sustainable and livelihoods support programme seeks to engage parents and youths in economically viable entrepreneurship that further addresses the issue of getting a steady income. The youths engage in skills training and adult literacy classes to position themselves appropriately for the job market. The parents are trained on basic business skills and small grants are loaned out to help them start an income generating activity that will help them sustain their families.
