Our commitment to the visibility, voices and rights of girls

Posted on the 7th March 2017

To mark International Women’s Day, we are reaffirming our commitment to gender equality for all girls, but especially street-connected girls worldwide.

There are up to an estimated 150 million children living on the streets around the world today. Street-connected girls everywhere are often at high risk of violence, abuse and sexual exploitation, but their low visibility makes it hard to reach them.

Street-connected girls remain invisible, unheard and denied their rights.

We are committed to the equality and empowerment of girls through visibility, voices and rights. This is at the core of the Street Child World Cup Moscow 2018:

  • Visibility: For the first time, there will be an equal number of girls and boys’ teams playing
  • Voices: A Congress, with a unique platform for girl’s voices to be heard
  • Rights: A call for equal rights for street-connected and homeless girls
