2015 Winners of the Football for Good – Game Changer Award
Our flagship initiative, the Street Child World Cup, was presented the inaugural Football for Good Game Changer Award recognising our work using the power of football to effectively campaign and raise awareness of the plight of street children across the world.
Using the power of sport to provide a global platform for street children, we aim to inspire change at three levels:
Individual: empowering participants as positive role models for all street children.
Community: increasing awareness, support and opportunities for street children in their local communities at home.
Global: engaging the global community on the issues that matter most to street children.

“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 and I fully endorse this campaign giving street children a voice to claim their rights”
“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.”
