This is a space for homeless youngsters 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 youngsters 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 youngsters in Nigeria. Here, they can explore, develop, and discover their talents and dreams.

Feel free,  to reach out to us for partnership or any further information you may want from us.


A Nigeria where every homeless youngster and school dropout has access to supportive spaces to discover, develop, and explore their potential.


We aim to provide an alternative learning space for homeless youngsters and school dropouts in Nigeria, equipping them with the necessary tools to achieve their dreams.


We support homeless youngsters and school dropouts (aged 10-23 years) in Nigeria.


Since 2019, AKHIN has embarked on a heartfelt mission to uplift homeless and vulnerable children in Nigeria. Our commitment extends far beyond just meeting basic needs. We’re dedicated to providing a nurturing environment where every child can uncover their talents and thrive. We’re not just offering shelter; we’re offering a place to call home, where love knows no bounds.

But our impact doesn’t stop there. We’re not just rescuing children from the streets; we’re empowering mothers to take charge of their children’s well-being. Through training and support, we’re equipping these mothers with the skills they need to create safe and loving homes for their families.

Join us in making a difference. Together, we can build a brighter future for these children and their families.
