Research papers on street connected children
StreetInvest has a strong and vibrant link with schools and Universities.
We like to think that our school placements and University interns have been inspired to help us raise awareness on the issues facing street connected children and young people across the developing world.
Since 2014 StreetInvest has hosted Geography Undergraduate dissertation interns from Royal Holloway, University of London where the topic for the research is agreed between the student, their supervisors Professor Katie Willis or Dr Vandana Desai, and StreetInvest.
We want to share the research that has been done to date, and have created this page to showcase the Dissertations and papers produced over the last couple of years.
The views and research expressed here are those of the authors.
