Our Mission

Street Kids Funds mission is to empower street kids and their families with tools and guidance to rise out of poverty and become impact leaders for their communities.

Pakistan Program and Plan

Today, based on UN statistics 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 68% by 2050. At present 35% of the urban population around the world are living in urban slums that lack necessities of life.

Pakistan has a population of nearly 216 million, and the population living in slums is reported at 45.5% and rising according to the World Bank sources. Around 32% are under the age of 15 years and in major cities a rough estimate shows that there are between 1.2 to 1.5 million children roaming the streets. These children are denied basic rights such as access to basic education, healthcare or shelter and therefore become an easy target to various kinds of exploitation.

Helping kids advance

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!

Our Vision

To groom and educate them to become productive members of the local and global society

To be the Beacon of Hope and Change for street / slum kids and their families belonging to the neglected factions of the society in the developing world

Phase 1

Educational Grooming & Social Skills Development

The first project “SKF Educational Grooming and Learning Center” started its work on March 2nd, 2018 in Altaf Town in the city of Multan, Pakistan.

The center started with 10 children ages 4 years to 9 years and within a month, 4 more children joined as part of the daily 3-hour Monday to Friday educational grooming and learning program. The selected street children belonged to very poor households and their parents worked either as a daily laborers, housemaids, sweepers or rickshaw driver and could not afford to send their children to a school. These children were playing and roaming around the streets all day and had never been to a school.

SKF provided uniforms and sweaters, schools bags, books, stationary, and daily snacks to all the children in the program.

Children were taught in both Urdu and in English languages. Starting with basic alphabet learning, sentence formation, number recognition, counting, simple addition and subtraction exercises, drawing and coloring and story time.

From March 2018 to December 2018 in 9 months, all the 14 children showed remarkable improvement in their overall learning. Better retention, excitement to perform better each day, improvement in manners, overall hygiene and cleanliness. All the children were attentive, happy and minimum daily absentee and only 2 dropouts because the parents moved to another city.

In January 2019, SKF started a learning program using what is “fast tracked educational syllabus”. In which children are taught from grade one to grade five and the program is designed to be taught and completed effectively in one to two-year duration. This program is ongoing.

After completion of this fast track learning, SKF will assist the children to get admission into regular schools or boarding schools in the area or other cities and continue funding their education further as part of “SKF Rising Stars -Adopt a Child Sponsorship” project.
