What SSSK does

 SSSK was founded by two students. We aim to make people aware about the issues affecting street children. This involves trying to change the systems that perpetuate poverty and exclusion. We raise money for local projects which help such children realise their potential.  Our branches are run by students, and ALL monies raised or donated go to street child NGOs.

SSSK News

As we are at the start of a new academic year, our branch committees will be  sorting out their programme for both fund raising and awareness raising.

We have registered with Golden Giving to replace BTmydonate as our main platform for collecting donations. Use the link and input SSSK to the Search box. Members can register fundraising events, so that sponsors have a simple method for donating.

 Fundraising

For many years we have used BTmydonate to provide fundraisers with a platform to enable sponsors to donate, and where applicable, to recover Gift Aid.

BTmydonate (sadly) closed on June 30, and we are setting up an alternative platform which will become operational during the summer vac.

Grant applications

Please note that we are only able to support NGO’s that members have visited.
