The story of the Street Child Cricket World Cup 2019

Posted on the 24th October 2019

The Street Child Cricket World Cup 2019 brought young people from eight countries together in London and Cambridge to campaign for the rights and protection of street-connected children. The young people played cricket at Lord’s, gave speeches and Westminster and stood together to call for an end to stigmatization of street-connected young people, protection and support from their governments, for all children to receive a legal identity at birth and access to education and healthcare.

This is the story of the event and the impact the young people made.
