International Day Resources

The International Day for Street Children is celebrated every year on the 12th of April.

The day provides a platform for raising awareness about children living in the streets and is a great opportunity to get your school involved with S.A.L.V.E.’s work.

It would be fantastic if you could use the teaching resources provided within the education hub to teach a series of lessons about children’s rights and life on the streets in the run up to or directly after the International Day (and make sure to use our guide to raising awareness to promote your involvement with the day!). However if you are short on time we’ve also made a whole school assembly to help you promote the day and explore the issues it raises with your school.
