About Retrak

Retrak reaches out to the children who have been forgotten by their communities, children who have no one else to turn to. Our work and research provides a beginning-to-end approach for street children and the wider-community, that improves their lives. We support these amazing children as they reintegrate back into their families and communities…back to being children again.

Retrak works to enable street children to move from a life of vulnerability, exclusion and poverty to a life within a positive family or community. We work with the children and the family members to ensure everyone is as healthy, emotionally well, safe, educated, and as economically dependent as possible. Obviously this is a difficult task, these are just some of the services we provide to help these children fulfil their potential.
