"To preserve knowledge and enable it to travel throughout time, entrust it to children"
The key to successfully rehabilitating and reintegrating street children lies in research, with such research we can provide real recommendations to our partners and other NGOs.

Street Children Education: Challenges and Prospects, A Case Study in Morocco
MA in Education and International Development, Institute of Education, University of London, September 2010
by Zineb Gormat- Regional Advocate, Walou
“It is uncommon for street children to be asked about what they need to learn; let alone why they need to learn. A discussion on the school reintegration of street children shed the light on the importance of examining children's experiences within schools as well teachers and peers' attitudes in order to fully understand their exclusion and its impact on their educational outcomes.”
