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 pick up the magazine
from their local street paper office, choose where to sell the magazine in their city and choose their working hours.
From their pitch, vendors sell the magazine
at a profit and keep the proceeds.
Vendors also gain valuable social skills,
make friends and are supported by social workers at the street paper.
In return, you get a great read,
and you've empowered someone in need.
