THE DIFFERENCE WE MAKE
Disturbed by a BBC documentary Duncan Dyason has committed the last 25 years of his life to the street kids of Latin America. As founder and director of ‘Street Kids Direct’ he works tirelessly in Guatemala with a small team of staff and volunteers doing outreach on the streets, mentoring high risk young people, operating a centre which is a safe place for the children to come and training and campaigning for the rights of these children.
Street Kids Direct is now one of the most successful charities working with street children in Guatemala and can accredited with the reduction in children on the streets of Central America. What Duncan has seen and the stories he can tell can be harrowing but we can’t ignore the desperation and the poverty that children in this world live in.
Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world. James 1:27 (the Message)
