HOPE IN HEELS
Saturday 30 May 2015
Battersea Park, London
Without parents to support them, orphans are particularly vulnerable to abuse and neglect: under-fed, over-worked and prematurely sexualised. Through school-based child rights clubs, HOPEHIV is working with vulnerable children and reaching out to parents, guardians, traditional and religious leaders, the police and local government. Together, these local stakeholders can develop appropriate community-based systems to protect orphans in the long-term.
Child rights underpin all our work, breaking the vicious circle of damaged children becoming damaged adults who damage children.

For street kids, violence, theft and prostitution are the norms. HOPEHIV partners increase awareness of street kids’ rights and responsibilities, and provide ways of turning them into reality: access to healthcare, training, and help with going home.
