Street to School

We believe that street children matter, and that every child has the right to fulfil their potential. That’s why we want to thank our charity partners, our employees and our customers. Over the last five years we’ve worked together to help more than 1 million children receive the support and education they so desperately need, both in the UK and beyond. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Aviva’s global Street to School programme came to an end in December 2014, after five successful years which has seen the issue of street children’s right move to the centre stage at UN level, the world’s highest authority on children’s rights.

We are very proud of what Street to School has achieved. At our launch in 2009 we set ourselves a target of helping 500,000 children by 2015.  We have already beaten this, working with our partners to help more than 1 million children around the world.

Although the global partnership programme is coming to an end, Aviva will continue to advocate on behalf of street children through our work with the Consortium for Street Children and the UN . Our longstanding work in South East Asia will also continue for another two years.

At the end of 2014, together with our partners we celebrated what we have achieved and learnt. You can read more about our 'Creating lasting change' event with the Guardian here.
