DO NOT FORGET US:

CRISES THE WORLD FORGOT

While 1.1 Million Rohingya refugees are being forced out of their homes, girls as young as 15 continue to be trafficked in Nigeria.

Recent events in Ukraine have shocked and saddened the international community. However, this is not the only crisis. While the world focuses on Ukraine we must not forget the children across the world whose ability to be safe, in school and learning continues to be threatened by crises such as child trafficking, forced displacement and conflict.

We see these crises hit the headlines as sensational news stories but when the media attention fades Street Child continues to focus on the most marginalised children who are most at risk of being forgotten.

BANGLADESH

In August 2017, the Rohingya refugee crisis hit the international news, with 200,000 fleeing political persecution in Rakhine State, Myanmar, to neighbouring Bangladesh. Prominent figures like Malala, spoke out against the targeted violence and human rights violations which the UN described as ‘textbook ethnic cleansing’. 5 years on, the media attention on Rohingya refugee's has faded.

NIGERIA

In 2014, the abduction of over 270 Chibok girls from their school in Nigeria caught international attention. The campaign #BringBackOurGirls shone a light on the prolific trafficking of girls in the country. Whilst the news stories subsided, attacks on education and human trafficking continue in Nigeria with an estimated one million Nigerians, mostly young girls, still being trafficked each year.

'DO NOT FORGET US' APPEAL FAQ'S
  • Street Child works with local organisations to ensure every child has access to an education. We work to ensure all children are safe, in school and learning- especially in low resource environments and emergencies which are often forgotten. Since 2008 we have supported 650,033 children with services such as direct access to education and mental health provision. By donating to our ‘Do Not Forget Us’ appeal, you will ensure we can change the lives of thousands of children and that no child is forgotten. 

  • Other than donating there are many other ways you can support the 'Do Not Forget Us' appeal. Talking about and sharing our appeal is incredibly valuable in amplifying the voices of forgotten children. You can do this by sharing our campaign videos on your social media, reading the blog posts from our in-country teams, starting a conversation with your friends on these important topics or even setting up your own fundraiser! If you would like to organise a fundraiser for the ‘Do Not Forget Us’ campaign, please contact supportercare@street-child.org. 

  • Donations from our ‘Do Not Forget Us’ appeal are unrestricted. This means 88% of the money raised will go towards ensuring children across the world are not forgotten. For every £1 you donate 88p is spent on ensuring children are safe, in school and learning while 12p is spent on admin costs. Admin costs allow us to achieve our main goal, which is to provide quality programmes across our projects in 20 countries.
