John Wroe, CEO of Street Child World Cup writes a letter to all our friends and supporters telling the incredible story of former street child Owais. Owais represented Pakistan at the 2014 Street Child World Cup and helped change the lives of 1.5 million children still living on the streets. He said “For the other street children I will work for them and do the same things that Street Child World Cup has done for me and children like me.” This is because of you – it happened because you support the Street Child World Cup.
This Christmas, please donate to help more young people like Owais show the world what they are capable of when they receive the protection, support and opportunities that all children deserve.
You can watch Owais’ incredible story below.
“No child should have to live on the streets and I fully endorse this campaign giving street children a voice to claim their rights”
“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.”
“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.”
