To mark the International Day for Street Children our team from Brazil took football to the lawns of Westminster to raise awareness of those young people still living and working on the streets. The young people were given a guided historical tour of the Houses of Parliament before raising a banner they had made on Parliament Green.
“When ever people come across me they laugh. It seems like my mouth is zipped because they talk for us. I wish they could give us a chance to talk for ourselves.”
“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.”
“I experienced hardcore street life in my youth. I know what it’s like. I congratulate the Street Child World Cup project in it’s commitment to bring attention to the plight of Street Children through the power of football.”
