The Street Child World Cup is a global movement for street children to receive the protection and opportunities that all children are entitled to.
Ahead of each FIFA World Cup, we unite street children from across five continents to play football and join us in a unique international conference.
Together through football, art and campaigning we aim to challenge the negative perceptions and treatment of street children around the world.
On March 27th, 2014 our 10-day tournament and conference will kick off in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. You can join us on the Road to Rio by signing up to our supporters club now. This is more than a game.
