A Cricket World Cup for street children

The first Cricket World Cup for street-connected children will take place ahead of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales.

The Street Child Cricket World Cup will unite street children from around the world to play in their own international cricket tournament to raise awareness and tackle the widespread stigma and negative treatment they face.

On the pitch, eight national teams, both girls and boys, will represent their countries. Off the pitch, the young people will make their voices heard and make recommendations to help improve the lives of street children worldwide.
