Overview

This book aims to: empower street children through rebuilding lives, restoring dignity and releasing potential; equip and encourage people who work or may work amongst street and homeless children; and inform those in positions of influence. While acknowledging different views, it is based on the belief that there is sufficient common ground between cultures and contexts for practitioners in all parts of the world to learn from each other. By providing an analysis of how one approach was tried, tested, improved and expanded through careful and constant attention to reflective analysis and review, it shows how principles can be drawn out which transcend specific context and culture. The approach is • holistic • relational • transitional • child-centred • professional. It is built around a conviction that the work is untenable or weakened if any of these elements is missing or ignored.
