Our History

Street Kids Direct has been working with street-living and at-risk children since 2001.  Our founder, Duncan Dyason, has been working with street children in Guatemala City since 1992 when he moved there after watching a harrowing TV documentary and founded The Toybox Charity.

We continue to work with our partners to reach the most vulnerable children and young people on the streets or at very high-risk of street life.  The charity has developed a unique mentoring programme that targets the most at-risk children and provides them with a caring and consistent adult mentor to help them make positive life choices and not consider life on the streets, but enjoy life in all its fulness.

Take a look below to see some of our highlights from the last 20 years.
