The Chisomo Street Kids Project works with the poorest and most vulnerable in Lusaka, Zambia, providing intervention for kids on the street, running a Drop-In Centre and facilitating prevention work with women and their families in some of the poorer areas of the city.
The mission of Chisomo is to the street children of Zambia. These children are the forgotten or ignored, the victims of the global HIV/AIDS crisis or just of systemic and crushing poverty. Chisomo strives to offer a safe haven for street children, a place where they can receive shelter, food, clothing, education and counseling. Through its programs of tracing and reuniting, Chisomo works to reintegrate street children into their home communities and families, which is ultimately the best place for them.
CRED are proud to support Chisomo in their work, especially their holistic approach, which includes outreach, providing shelter and education, and reintegration into the wider community.
