We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals to volunteer at the Street Child World Cup Moscow 2018. Applications are now open!
In May 2018, the third Street Child World Cup will kick off in Moscow, ahead of the Russia FIFA World Cup. Street-connected children representing 24 national teams from around the world will come together for their own World Cup.
United by one goal, they will play to raise awareness for the situation for street children worldwide and send their message to the world: “I AM SOMEBODY”.
Help run the football tournaments, support the Congress for street children’s rights, run activities as part of the festival or arts, work with the communications team to amplify the voices of the children worldwide and much more. What ever you do, you will be helping to raise vital awareness and support for millions of street-connected children around the world. This is more than a game.
Molly, a volunteer at the 2016 Street Child Games, said: “My experience left me so inspired. Inspired by the 60 plus other volunteers I had the pleasure of working side by side with, inspired by the athleticism of the young people competing in the Games themselves, and inspired by the bravery and candor displayed during the Congress.”
– You will need to commit to 13 days, excluding travel.
– All volunteers will be asked to raise £1200 (plus pay for your own flights & visa costs).
– You will need to have raised 100% of your fundraising target by 30th March 2018.
– On acceptance of a volunteer place you will need to pay a non-refundable £250 registration fee, this will be deducted from your total fundraising target.

“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 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.”
“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.”
