James Cosmo who plays the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch says “You want to know why I support street children? Because we have all made silly mistakes in our youth. Fortunately, most of us had families and friends to support us, to help us, to rely on. But street children don’t. Imagine if that was our kids alone and out on the streets. That's why Street Child Africa’s work is so important. Let’s give these kids a chance. Support The International Day for Street Children.”
“Many children in sub-Saharan Africa live, work and sleep on the streets. These children are young, vulnerable, and alone. Yet somehow, they are resilient. And just like our children, they have fantastic potential. Street Child Africa supports these children through education, training and economic empowerment. But together, we could do so much more. Let’s all stand up for street children. Let’s all support The International Day for Street Children.”
