About us

We are Street Child United.

We have an office in East London, England and in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We are the heart of a huge global family trying to change the world for street children.

We champion the power of sport to provide a platform for former street children to challenge the negative perceptions and treatment of street children worldwide.

We work with an outstanding network of grassroots partners working on the front line with street children everyday.

We collaborate with an incredible network of diverse partners from artists and musicians, international organisations and corporate partners, faith groups and football clubs, media outlets and events, schools and clubs, policy makers and experts who all share our vision.

We are a team of volunteers and supporters based around the world dedicated to ensuring the voices of street children are heard.

We are an international community supporting, sharing and celebrating the potential of street children and highlighting what needs to be done to support them to leave the streets behind.

We are you and your support transforming the lives of street children across the world.
