 railway Children  

Railway Children UK whose mission is fights for vulnerable children who live alone at risk on the streets, where they suffer abuse and exploitation. Society often denies their existence while the problem is so prevalent that it has become ‘normal’. Railway Children UK has partnered with Undugu Society of Kenya in the rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration of street connected children and youth through a family therapy approach.

Street connected children and youth run away or are forced to leave homes where they suffer poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. They find themselves living on the streets because there is nowhere else to go and no one left to turn to. The problems they face on the streets are often even worse than those they endured at home. Every day, Undugu Society of Kenya fights to change their story. USK struggles to reach children as soon as they arrive on the streets and intervene before an abuser can. Our innovative approaches enable us to get to street children before the streets get to them.
