Street Child World Cup in association with Save the Children is a global movement for street children to receive the safety, support and opportunities that all children deserve.
We use the power of football to challenge the negative perceptions and treatment of street children transforming lives across the world.
In April 2014 over 230 former street children from 19 countries joined us in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a unique football tournament. These children stand united for the rights of street children across the world and they are not alone. Street Child World Cup received the support of Pope Francis, Prince William Duke of Cambridge, World Cup winners Gilberto Silva and Bebeto and football legend Zico.
No child should have to live on the streets.
David Beckham: ““I know from personal experience just what power football can have to inspire and change young people’s lives whatever their background or nationality. This is what the Street Child World Cup is all about and I give it my full support.”
