Our South African partner is Umthombo Street Children, an NGO working in the city of Durban, Kwa Zulu Natal. Umthombo has been working with the street children of Durban since and in 2010 successfully won their 10-year campaign against the illegal round ups of street children by the authorities.
Umthombo Street Children hosted the first ever Street Child World Cup in Durban in 2010.
At the Street Child World Cup Rio 2014, Umthombo brought both a boys’ and a girls’ team.
Capital City: Pretoria
Umthombo report the Street Child World Cup had a “big impact” on their young people, with many showing a “more positive, can do” attitude and improved self-esteem. Local businesses and schools have invited the team to share their experiences.
