Why the Need for Street Kids Funds (SKF)
Street Kids Funds (SKF) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization registered in the State of California.
Tax ID: 82-1891756. Donations are tax deductible.
The mission of SKF is NOT to build another school! BUT to setup educational grooming centers in different cities. SKF’s educational centers are for children from poor households. Children that are not going to a school but roaming on streets or working along with their parents to earn money, as housemaids in different homes or working in factories or selling stuff in the markets. These children are deprived to get an education because parents cannot afford to send them to a school.
Children ages 4 to 12 years are enrolled at SKF educational program for 2 to 3 years. They receive basic primary level education based on their age and their learning ability. After 2 years, amongst those children that are selected the process starts to get them admitted into regular primary schools. These children join regular schools as “SKF Rising Stars” and become part of “SKF’s Adopt a Child Sponsorship” program. SKF’s sponsorship program will pay the child’s yearly school fees and monitor their educational progress in school. In April 2020 SKF plans to enroll the first batch of 2 SKF children into a regular school program in Multan as SKF Rising Stars.
SKF project officially launched
SKF project was officially launched on August 14, 2017 in Fremont, California, USA, on the 70th Independence Day of Pakistan and the 70th anniversary for Pakistan-USA friendship.
SKF runs as a 100% voluntary organization in its management to ensure that all the donated funds are used to pay the instructors and cover the operational costs of its center. There is 100% transparency in how the funds are spent.
Lacking proper grooming and basic education these street children are destined to grow up in poverty and remain in the same communities. Wandering in the streets and falling behind in the society and being deprived of their basic human rights.
SKF programs will assist these street children and their families to break away from poverty and change their destiny. To prosper and make a better future for themselves and their generations to come!
