INSPIRING THE STREET YOUNGSTERS
WELCOME TO AKHIN
This is a space for homeless youth to express, discover, develop, and explore their talents to fulfil their dreams.
AKHIN, the flagship of Save the Street Child Foundation, takes its name from the Yoruba word “AKIN,” symbolizing resilience, courage, fearlessness, and independence. It was founded in 2019 to deal with the pressing issues faced by homeless youth in Nigeria.
The founder, who spent 12 years on the streets in the early stages of life, personally experienced the challenges faced by homeless youth in Nigeria. These young people confront an inhumane, loveless, and dangerous street environment, exposing them to diseases, drug abuse, and involvement in criminal activities, often leading to imprisonment or juvenile delinquency centres.
To address these challenges, we started AKHIN, an organisation offering a learning space for homeless youth in Nigeria. Here, they can explore, develop, and discover their talents and dreams.
AKHIN REMEDIA CLASS
A Nigeria where every homeless youngster has access to caring spaces expresses themselves freely, and develops their potential, steering clear from life on the streets.
We aim to provide an alternative learning space, for homeless youngsters to dream and be empowered with the necessary tools to achieve their dreams.
We support homeless youth (aged 12-25 years) in Nigeria.
