WHAT WE DO
We develop collective learning paths that strengthen and build the capacity of organizations to think about the world and transform reality.
We invest in the capacities of our members to increase organizational capacity, internally democracy, training and actions.
We bring the demands of street vendors and other informal traders to the international forums, local negotiations and combat the stigma against informal economy workers.
To unite working, voiceless, unorganized, and marginalized street and market vendors in the struggle for their socio-economic rights and justice through strengthening their voice, visibility, and legitimacy for influencing the policy directly affecting their lives.
Since StreetNet’s foundation street vendors are better organized, more united and have carved up a space for their issues in the global agenda. We will continue to honor StreetNet’s legacy and make our motto come true: Nothing for us without us!
StreetNet International is a global organization of committed informal traders, with the goal to promote and leverage an autonomous and democratic alliance of street vendors, hawkers, and cross-border traders in over 50 countries.
All affiliates of StreetNet are workers’ organizations. These can be national trade unions, national federations, associations, and city alliances.
People have a right to sell,
have a right to be secure,
and have a right to survive
