We are asking our supporters to follow the new and updated Street Child World Cup YouTube channel for all the latest from the Road to Rio. Street Child World Cup has always been more than a game and the work never stops. The impact is felt across the world 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year, meaning we have an array of incredible and inspiring stories from those on the front line working with street children.
So we’re launching Today at the Street Child World Cup; a regular feed of stories giving you an exclusive insight into the Street Child World Cup and our Road to Rio.
Today at the Street Child World Cup kicks-off with Street Skillz; a little earlier this year we teamed up with the Premier League and Queens Park Rangers to pilot a new project with Team Tanzania. Street Skillz develops regular sessions of football and the arts for street children, giving them a ‘safe space’ to fulfill their potential, whilst providing encouragement to leave the streets for good. The pilot was a great success and something we’re very excited about, we would like to offer the Street Skillz programme to each of our partner organisations around the world.

No child should have to live on the streets.
“It was a privilege to be invited to the launch of the Street Child World Cup at Downing Street. It gives children a voice through football, sales a platform to express their rights and celebrate their abilities – I’m proud to add my support.”
“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.”
“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.”
