Charity: Our Street Our Children
Charity number: CT59260
Description: Our Street Our Children is a Non Governmental Organisation formed in Nepal in 2012 to provide assistance to street children living on the streets of Narayangarh, Chitwan, Nepal. OSOC provides support for street children in three key areas: Help for street children Supporting education for children in poverty Providing hostel for street children Our Street Our Children (Hamro Sadak Hamra Balbalika in Nepali) was started by Dave and Jackie Britten before they returned from Nepal after working for a year in the local community in Narayangarh, a city located in the heart of Nepal in the district of Chitwan. OSOC is a Nepali organisation run by Nepalis. It is run by a management committee in Nepal, comprised of members of the local community who want to make a difference in their city. They are all volunteers, the only paid staff are outreach workers who work with the children on the streets of Narayangarh. Jackie and Dave organise events in the UK to raise funds which are then transferred directly to OSOC in Nepal. There are no administrative overheads and all of the money raised goes to help the children of Narayangarh.

The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
