**Launch of the inaugural International Day for Street Children on 12th April**
*Posted by Frances* for the Consortium for Street Children
The International Day for Street Children: Louder Together is a campaign to give a louder voice to the millions of street children all around the world so their rights cannot be ignored.
Governments need to listen. The Consortium for Street Children want to help make this happen. We must give street children a voice. Together we are louder and have more impact so we are asking everyone to…
RAISE YOUR VOICE FOR STREET CHILDREN
The International Day is being celebrated across the globe: by street children in Morocco, Uganda, Ethiopia, Guatemala and India; school children in the UK; students in Ireland; the Consortium for Street Children and its 60 members in over 130 countries; Aviva plc in the 28 countries in which it operates; and politicians in Tanzania and the UK.
