The first phase of a Research Project on street children is currently in progress in Taroudannt. The project is aimed at identifying the key issues in street children’s lives, helping to ensure that the support MCT develops for street children is appropriate and targeted. MCT is planning to release a research report on the subject, due in summer 2010.
MCT’s work is expanding, as we develop new projects to support children in poverty in Taroudannt and South Morocco. A number of exciting opportunities have arisen to improve the range and quality of support that street children receive, helping them to reintegrate school, access health services and get additional structure in their daily living.
Meetings are currently being held with local organisations to explore the possibilities for joint working and developing formal partnership agreements. We will bring you more news of these new collaborations and the difference they are making to street children in the coming months.
