In 2017 walk, run, swim or kick for the Street Child World Cup

Posted on the 27th January 2017

Last year, thanks to support from incredible people like you, the Street Child Games gave children from nine countries the chance to show the world that, “street-connected children need love, respect and to be seen.”

In 2017 we’re continuing their call. Today there are an estimated 150 million children surviving on the streets around the world who need your love, your respect and your help to ensure they are seen, and their voices heard.

That’s why we’re asking you to support the Street Child World Cup 2018, which will kick off ahead of the next FIFA World Cup. With the world watching we will use the power of football to give street children a voice.

With your help, we will bring 24 national teams of street-connected children together in Moscow. They will be united by one goal – to inspire their countries to see and treat all children, no matter their background, with love and respect, so they can be protected, supported and gain access to the opportunities they need to build a life away from the streets.

The next Street Child World Cup kicks off in May 2018, and the work has already begun.

This year we need your help to raise vital funds and awareness, and we’ve got lots of exciting ways to do it. There are runs, triathlons, walks and bike rides all over the country, so if you can, please take up a new challenge in 2017 to support the Street Child World Cup. This is more than a game.
