Headcount Methodology and Reports
A sector-leading methodology
StreetInvest’s observational Headcount methodology was recognised as a sector standard by the Consortium for Street Children in 2015.
Since it was developed, StreetInvest has been directly involved in headcounts in India, Kenya, Ghana, Ethiopia (commissioned by UNICEF), Tanzania and two nationwide headcounts in Sierra Leone. The first of these in 2011 was the first-ever national headcount of street-connected children.
Detailed statistics have been collected on over 100,000 street-connected children and young people, and over 250 practitioners have received StreetInvest’s headcount training.
