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.
“No child should have to live on the streets. I commend the Street Child World Cup for providing a platform for the rights of street children to be heard.”
“It was possible to gather many nationalities, cultures, and form a nation: a nation of free man, with equal rights and opportunities, mutual respect, rightful duties. It was 10 days when the world, in that corner of Rio, was fair to socially excluded children; they could feel the beauty of being somebody in this world.”
“No child should have to live on the streets and I fully endorse this campaign giving street children a voice to claim their rights”
