Putting children at the heart of all we do, Retrak is a development agency impacting vulnerable children and families around the world.

Following local efforts on the streets in Uganda in 1994, Retrak's model for supporting vulnerable children has grown from 2,821 beneficiaries in 2009 to more than 25,000 today. Retrak now works in Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi and now in Brazil with head offices in the UK and the USA.

Providing advanced work in the reasons why children are living on streets, Retrak researches root causes as well as headcounts of children on the streets in our groundbreaking enumeration studies. Retrak also undertakes programmes to supply children with food, medicine, shelter, education, family-tracing, as well as repatriation, parenting skills and follow-up care for vulnerable children around the world.

Retrak provides children with safe alternatives to life on the street through sustainable programmes, impactful local outreaches, global and local partnerships. Our innovative approach on the streets, and our in-depth research, makes Retrak a leader in its field.

Retrak works hard to transform children's lives, preserve families, empower communities for a world where no child is forced to live on the street.
