New law to protect homeless in Guatemala

New law to protect homeless in Guatemala

Street Kids Direct has been working hard over the last few years, together with other organisations and the Guatemala government to help provide effective child protection systems and resources in order to keep children and particularly at-risk children safe.
For the last two years we have been coordinating efforts to advise the Guatemalan government with regards to protecting the human rights of all those who live on the streets in Guatemala. This has led to a white paper being presented to the Guatemalan Congress that we hope will not only protect rights but also provide resources to help those living on the streets access services and support.
We are very grateful to the very hard work of Juan Carlos Silvestre Gonzalez who has represented the charity and helped promote this proposed law with ODISOG.ORG on the 27th October 2022.
