Drop-In Centres for Street Children in Kabul
Get a child off the streets and help them aspire for a better tomorrow.
There is a sharp rise in the number of child street beggars, but daily earnings have dropped by more than half, most barely making enough to feed their family. This increases their risk of exploitation and abuse, even mutilation.
HAGAR's drop-in centres offer a positive alternative. Every child that comes get free food and informal education from onsite tutors. If they stay for the day, they will also receive a small dinner pack that they can bring home for their family. This way, we help them prepare for a better life while also supporting the family's needs.
