our philosophy

We believe that every street child and street young adults has the capacity to become or achieve whatsoever they have set their mind on.



There is an audacity in every child to explore,  but society seems not to see it therefore we are together with homeless children and young adult wish to dare.


The undying spirit of homeless children is a value we are willing to hold on to as this will help us to remind ourselves of the need to try one more time.


We see all homeless street children as indevidiaul who desire to be indepentent and this is a value we hold on to.


Every child need to be treated equally no matter where they are born,  where they live,  or what their gender  is.


To be accountable to our supporters and the society where we operate is a not negotiable demand for us.


Not keeping to time is a culture we want to change, therefore, we respect individual time.

Israel Balogun

Being born to a poor family with 26 siblings and the separation of my parents, led me to live on the streets at the age of ten. I stole, fought, and stabbed people to survive. With the help of a kind man, at 22 years of age, I left the streets. I studied, worked, and settled down. Since then, I have been trying to help street-children to find their paths.
