Across the world millions of children live and work on the streets.

Street Child World Cup in association with Save the Children is a global movement for street children to receive the protection, rehabilitation and opportunities that all children are entitled to.

In April 2014 over 230 former street children from 19 countries joined us in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a football tournament, festival of arts and a participatory conference for children’s rights. 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.

Together we believe that no child should have to live on the streets. 

The journey for street children’s rights continues and you can join us by signing up to our supporters club now.

David Beckham: I look forward to Brazil in 2014 when street children from around the world will play football and represent the millions of children who still live or work on our streets.“  Read further endorsements here
