We are Street Child United

We use the power of sport to change the way street children are negatively seen and treated around the world.

We provide a global platform for street children’s voices to be heard, so they can receive the protection, support and opportunities that every child is entitled to.

Ahead of the world’s biggest sporting competitions we organise international sports events inviting street children to be at the centre of the call for their rights. We are proud organisers of the Street Child World Cup and Street Child Games.

Visit our dedicated Street Child Games site to see all the action.
