Street Child United teams up with Studio Cambridge English Language School
Posted on the 23rd January 2015
Studio Cambridge English Language School has offered bursaries for up to eight children who played at the 2014 Street Child World Cup. The young people will study English in Cambridge for 10 weeks in order to improve their English language skills and personal development as ambassadors for street children’s rights.
The former street children taking part are survivors of the streets and are now successfully integrating back into society. They will join the other students in a summer course and stay with host families providing a unique experience. The programme will enable them to develop as ambassadors for street children in their own countries and internationally, raising awareness about street children and what needs to be done to support them. A young person who can speak from experience about life on the streets makes a very powerful spokesperson.
John Wroe, CEO of Street Child United commented, “I have always believed that the whole world conspires with us to make the Street Child World Cup possible but occasionally an outrageously generous act simply stops me in my tracks. Studio Cambridge English Language School offering to host and teach eight former street children in Cambridge this summer is just such an occasion. These young people will have a unique opportunity to develop key skills continuing their personal development away from the streets and as ambassadors for street children across the world.”
How you can help.
We are very fortunate that Studio Cambridge has generously offered the educational places at no cost. But we need help to find host families, raise money for the transport and other costs, coordinate publicity and provide welcoming and interesting experiences for the young people during their stay.
