Growing Up On The Streets
Growing up on the Streets is an international research project working with 198 children and young people (aged 14 – 20) in three African cities – Accra, Ghana; Bukavu, DRC; and Harare, Zimbabwe.

The research is supported by StreetInvest while the University of Dundee is the lead academic partner. The project received full approval from University of Dundee Research Ethics Committee.
