Our History

Street Kids Direct has been working with street-living and at-risk children since 2001 and our founder, Duncan Dyason, has been working with street children since 1992. We continue to raise vital funds for projects that work with street-living and at-risk children in both Guatemala and Honduras. 

As part of Vision 2021, we are exploring how we can increase our support to more projects beyond Central America where the numbers of children living on the streets continues to grow.

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