Viva North America works with local grassroots organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America to build their capacity so workers don't burn out and more street children are rescued. They build networks of local organizations to strategize so their efforts don't overlap and resources are stretched further. Their efforts include stopping child traffickers at bus and train stations when a child enters a city, holding Christmas parties with health care for street kids and special needs kids, raising awareness about traffickers, and coordinating soup kitchens so children of the slums can eat every night of the week and not just one night a week. As a result, more kids are served and child workers are able to hang in there and work longer and more effectively, doing the hard work they do everyday on the front lines.
