About us

A UK-registered charity, Casa Alianza UK has a single-minded and life-changing objective – to help and defend street children across Latin America.

We work tirelessly to raise awareness and funds for our programme partners in Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua. Collectively we help around 10,000 street children a year, equipping them with the material and emotional resources they need to transition successfully into adulthood.

Our vision & mission

Immediacy

We give children in crisis a hot meal, a shower, clean clothes and medical attention.

Sanctuary

Our street educators and staff work hard to build the trust of every single child.

Values

We encourage children to relate to adults based on respect, responsibility and honesty.

Structure

Providing a much-needed routine to former street children helps them focus on the future.

Choice

Children must be empowered to make their own choices, and we show them how.

The children in our care deserve the highest level of legal protection.

Our Casa Alianza programme partners in Latin America have a Child Protection Policy in place, which complies fully with local legislation, national laws and international conventions. We invite you to find out more about how we safeguard the rights of the children we care for.

Our history

From a small volunteer group to an international NGO – our structure might have changed over the years, but the need for our services sadly hasn’t.
