About Street Kids International:

Street Kids International merged with Save the Children and is no longer an independent charity taking donations. Charity Intelligence has discontinued research coverage. This is an old report that will not be updated.


Founded in 1988, Street Kids International (SKI), based in Toronto and London, England,  strives to help street youth worldwide develop business skills and health knowledge to better their lives.  SKI teams with youth workers at youth organizations around the world to develop locally relevant trainings that engage youth about entrepreneurship, sexual health, and drug use.

SKI was founded on the belief that regardless of social, economic, or educational background, street kids can earn a respectable income and become productive members of the community.

SKI’s major countries of focus in F2010 included Nepal (21% of spending), Poland (21%), Peru (18%), Kenya (12%), and Ethiopia (11%).  Programs include business and financial toolkits, animated films and workshops, mentorship, employment services, micro finance, and health programs.

Financial Review:

Total revenues have fallen 29% from F2009 to F2011, primarily driven by a significant drop in donations from corporations and foundations.  Administrative costs are 30% of revenues and fundraising costs are 21% of donations.  Funding reserves of $182k (including donor-endowed funds of $21k held at Tides International) cover only 30% of annual program costs.
