#TheJourney to the Street Child World Cup: The Future Depends On You

Posted on the 4th May 2018

It’s almost time for the Street Child World Cup: The Future Depends On You to kick off. At the event, organised by SCU in partnership with Megafon and in association with Save the Children, over two hundred street-connected young people from 21 countries across the world will contribute to an international football tournament, a festival of arts and a Congress for their rights.

The Street Child World Cup creates a global platform for young people to speak from and deliver a message to the world. To help create that platform, we’ve partnered with Seenit and FBB Productions to make videos where the young people tell their story of taking part in the Street Child World Cup.

Working with the Seenit platform has, for the first time, allowed us to collect videos made by the young people coming to the Street Child World Cup before the event starts. The videos below are a collaboration of footage sent by hundreds of young people from across the world, giving our audiences an insight into the massive efforts our Teams have gone to on their #RoadtoRussia.

#TheJourney to the Street Child World Cup videos tell the story of the young people and volunteers who have put in so much effort to make the event happen. Before the Street Child World Cup opening ceremony (08:00 GMT, Friday 11 May), enjoy these videos to meet the teams campaigning to change the way street-connected young people are seen and treated.
