How Street Papers Work

A magazine is created

by dedicated journalists and storytellers. It includes a range of stories and authentic reporting from people experiencing poverty. It can also include international stories thanks to the INSP News Service.

Vendors receive the magazine

from their local street paper office, choose where to sell the magazine in their city and choose their working hours.

Vendors sell the magazine

at a profit. More than half your money goes directly to supporting the seller.
