We're going to split the day into two halves so you'll be able to register for the whole day, or just the morning or afternoon sessions.

On Her Terms
10.30 – 13.00

Amos Street Child

In the morning, we'll be sharing plans for our street child work in 2018 and beyond – On Her Terms. With films, presentations and conversations with the women workers from Amos' partners in Burundi, India, South Africa and Tanzania.

Listen as our guests share new pioneering responses to working with teenage girls and young women who live on the streets. Hear their stories – the hurdles they have to overcome and what they have learnt from young women living on the streets.
