Dynamo International – Street Workers Network is an international network made of social street workers that act on the field in favour of persons in street situations. The idea is to make these street workers easily and simply available to those who are the most excluded.
The network is currently made up of social street workers coming from 51 countries from the North and the South. As a true network of solidarity, this movement is active in the struggle against poverty and social exclusion. It favours practices exchange, trainings, speaking of field actors, interpellation of public powers and other instances as part of the struggle against exclusion and inequalities. The network helps spreading the words of people in street situation that are helped on a daily basis by social street workers.
The mission of Dynamo International – Street Workers Network is to improve the protection and the respect of fundamental rights (life conditions, equality, emancipation and thriving…) of every person and in particular of children and youths, boys and girls in the street or in vulnerable situations, in the North or in the South.
How do we do that?
- By professionalising social street work, through the reinforcement of capacities and competences of field actors.
- By reinforcing and improving dialogue to favour synergies and complementarity among social street workers on national, regional and international levels.
- By inducing political changes, structural and durable answers to issues encountered by populations in the street everywhere in the world and especially in favour of the rights of children in street situation.
