This toolkit is developed in the scope of 12 April, International Day for Street Children. While focusing on the importance of belonging, rituals can serve as a good tool foster a deep sense of inclusion for street-connected children, ensuring they enjoy the same rights and feelings of belonging as all children all around the world. Our aim is to empower youth workers and to provide them with guidelines and methods to promote children’s rights.
