Using the power of sport to change the world for street children

We are Street Child United

We use the power of sport to provide a global platform for street children to be seen and their voices heard, so they can receive the protection support and opportunities that every child is entitled to.

Ahead of the world’s biggest sporting events, we organise international sports events for street children, challenging the negative perceptions and treatment of street children worldwide.

We are the proud organisers of the Street Child World Cup and
Street Child Games.
