The Street Child Cricket World Cup 2019 (SCCWC 2019) Summit took place in Cambridge in October 2018 bringing together organisations from across the world who provide frontline support for street-connected young people.
Street Child United were delighted to welcome Team Leaders from the following organisations, who will represent the countries taking part in SCCWC 2019:
Team Bangladesh – LEEDO
Team DRC – Kongolese Children’s Foundation
Team England – Centrepoint
Team India North – Save the Children India and The Hope Foundation
Team India South – Karunalaya and Magic Bus
Team Mauritius – SAFIRE
Team Nepal – Street Child and Childreach Nepal
Team Pakistan – Muslim Hands
Team Refugees – The Change Foundation
Team Tanzania – Pamoja Child and Youth Foundation
The Summit took place over five days, during which the organisations shared best practice, were prepared for taking part in a Street Child United event, inputted to the plans for SCCWC 2019 and heard talks from expert speakers including Caroline Ford (Consortium for Street Children), Saurabh Mishra (Commonwealth Secretariat) and Tulchan Communications.
The final day of the Summit took place at Lord’s, where the finals of the Street Child Cricket World Cup will be played. The Team Leaders took part in a Street 20 cricket training session, delivered by the Change Foundation, and had a tour of the ground and museum.
We’d like to say a big thank you to St Paul’s in Cambridge and Lord’s Cricket Ground for hosting the Summit and our amazing volunteers and suporters, without whom the event wouldn’t have been possible.
