Street work

 

Initial contact

At first our social workers carefully initiate contact with the street children. It is important to meet them with respect and acceptance. That way a trusting relationship can be built slowly and the specific situation of the respective child evaluated. Each month our social workers are in contact with children about 300 – 400 times. With some of them, we intensify our councelling. This can be achieved by visiting their relatives, assessing their educational options or through joint activities. The children are being reintegrated into their families if possible, referred to our Drop-In Centre or recommended to other NGOs.
