Charity number


Retrak is a UK based charity that works with street children in Africa to give them a real alternative to life on the street.

There are numerous reasons why children live and sleep on the streets, such as poverty; family strife; abuse; being orphaned, often as a result of HIV/AIDS; war and famine. Often abused or violated on the street, regarded as barely human and on the very fringe of society, they eke out an existence, begging or scavenging through rubbish for food.

Our aim is that these children can realise their full potential and discover their inherent worth. Our Core Objectives are to provide street children with:

  • Support in the transition from street life to a self sustaining life in the community.
  • Healthcare, refuge, education, employment opportunities and sports.
  • Long term care as they rediscover their identity and purpose.
  • Foster care placements and/or resettlement to their family/community of origin.
  •  A voice that speaks on their behalf.
