Morning Session: Getting Ready!
Friends-International has been assisting marginalized urban children and youth across the world since 1994. Starting in Cambodia, we now run and support projects in Laos, Thailand, Indonesia, Honduras, Mexico, Egypt and Myanmar.
Friends-International and its partners reach out to over 1 600 000 young people -particularly street children and youth – each year. We provide them with access to medical care, shelter and food. We offer a range of comprehensive services as part of our holistic approach to assisting children and their families to improve their lives.
Each year we support thousands of children to return to their families, go to school or learn a trade. Working with families, we empower them to be able to support themselves, so that they no longer need to send their children to work.
