Using sport for good

Right now millions of street children are surviving across the world.

These children and young people are often stigmatised, and as a result, mistreated and marginalised by society. They are routinely denied their basic human rights. Their voices are rarely heard.

We use sport to change this

Ahead of major sporting events we organise international sports events for street children, which combine the power of sport, a festival of arts and a congress for street children’s rights to change the way the world sees and treats street children.

Our sports events provide a global platform uniting former street children from across the world and capturing the world’s attention. On a level playing field, free from discrimination, the children become athletes and ambassadors demonstrating their potential, on and off the field, and inspiring change worldwide.

Our flagship initiative is the Street Child World Cup – the World Cup for street children – taking place ahead of each FIFA World Cup.

Alongside our flagship initiatives, we run a series of programmes and activities providing a continued platform for street children and their rights. You can find out more about our activities in the left-hand menu.
