The work of Duncan and Street Kids Direct is truly inspiring. We were introduced to the charity by one of our parents when his daughter Chloe, one of our alumni, went to volunteer during her gap year. Chloe came back to us to talk about her experiences and along with Duncan gave a talk to our Sixth Formers which was life changing. Their words transported our pupils and staff to the streets of Central America and gave us all real insight into the harsh realities that these children face everyday and what we can all do to help support Street Kids Direct. We also heard first-hand from Danilo, a young person Duncan has mentored for nearly ten years, which really brought home the work of this charity and the difference that we can all make. We are greatly looking forward to supporting Street Kids Direct and are incredibly proud to be a part of the work which they do.
Thank you so much for your time today - your passion for SKD and support of the children over the years is inspiring, it was an absolute pleasure having you back to talk to our students. And special thanks to Danilo for speaking in front of 200 students too! My upmost respect and best wishes to you both
Duncan and Street Kids Direct have had a relationship with Heatherton School for over 30 years. They are a truly amazing group of people who are really making a difference and genuinely changing lives. In a recent assembly, we met Danilo who shared his incredible story of moving from living on a rubbish pile to studying and helping others. Duncan and the team have helped mentor Danilo and so many other children in Guatemala providing them with both emotional and physical support. The assembly was inspiring, moving, thought-provoking and humbling – the pupils hung on every word. We are very proud to support Street Kids Direct in their vital work whenever we can and hope to continue doing so for another 30 years!
Duncan has the human touch that allows people of all ages to identify with the demanding work of Street Kids Direct. His presentations at Dr Challoner's school, Amersham are always appropriate and thoughtful. Duncan's passion for people shines through in such a compelling way that students want to understand the issue of street kids and be part of the solution.
