Volunteer at the Street Child World Cup 2018

Posted on the 9th June 2017

We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals to volunteer at the Street Child World Cup Moscow 2018. Applications are now open!

In May 2018, the third Street Child World Cup will kick off in Moscow, ahead of the Russia FIFA World Cup. Street-connected children representing 24 national teams from around the world will come together for their own World Cup.

United by one goal, they will play to raise awareness for the situation for street children worldwide and send their message to the world: “I AM SOMEBODY”.
