Project PartnershipS

ABOUT OUR PARTNERSHIPS:

Partnership with local projects is at the core of who we are and how we work. Not only does this make our 100% guarantee possible, but it ensures that work supports local communities, cultures and organisations.

We have four key principles to our partnerships: 

RESPECT - HONESTY - RESPONSIBILITY - COMMON VISION.

HOW OUR PARTNERSHIPS WORK:

At Street Kids Direct not only do we commit to up to 25% projects budget funding, but we also work alongside them on five key areas.

We are committed to continually developing and strengthening both our work and that of the projects we work with in order to exceed our common goal.

These five areas are broken down in to our FOCUS and METHODS

OUR FOCUS:

Both SKD and our partners all focus on reaching out to the most vulnerable. Each project has a different method but we all share the same vision- to see no children or youth left with the streets as their only option.

OUR PARTNERS:

We currently support six projects in Central America with five in Guatemala City and one in Honduras. They all have a focus of working with at-risk children and are directed by or run by Guatemalan Nationals. We are proud to support these projects and celebrate their achievements.
