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

We provide a global platform for street children, 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 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 the first Street Child Games.

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

  • “I know from personal experience just what power football can have to inspire and change young people’s lives whatever their background or nationality. This is what the Street Child World Cup is all about and I give it my full support.”
