Street-Wise: Towards A Relevant Education System for Street Children in South Africa
Street-Wise represents an extensive educational, vocational and life-skill project for street children in South Africa. This non-political interdenominational and nonracial endeavour was founded in 1986 and specifically established to meet the educational and job skills training needs of street children. This paper discusses the aims, activities, development and different aspects of the Street-Wise project. The successes and failures of this project will be evaluated in the context of the contemporary South African socio-educational situation.
