Team Philippines for the Street Child World Cup Rio 2014 was supported by a number of organisations working together. Led by the Fairplay for All Foundation which works in Payatas, Quezon City, the NGOs assisted each other in building and supporting the team.

The Fairplay for All Foundation works in Payatas, the location of the largest dumpsite in Metro Manila. It runs a drop-in centre for street children in the area and coaches football to children from Payatas and also in Kasiglahan, a relocation centre after the dumpsite collapsed in 2000. It is run by Roy Moore and Naomi Tomlinson.

Fairplay for All brought both a boys’ and a girls’ team to Rio in 2014 to represent the Philippines.
