“Sometimes it is hell on the streets but when I play football I feel as if I am in heaven.” Thamires, Brazil
Friday 23rd March 50 of the Street Child World Cup supporters club slept rough to raise funds and awareness for street children across the world.
The evenings Brazilian-themed entertainment included a Samba band, capoeira demonstrations, films and of course football! The event is held in association with our joint venture partner Action for Brazil’s Children Trust.
This is more than a game, no child should live on the streets.

“No child should have to live on the streets and I fully endorse this campaign giving street children a voice to claim their rights”
“It was a privilege to be invited to the launch of the Street Child World Cup at Downing Street. It gives children a voice through football, a platform to express their rights and celebrate their abilities – I’m proud to add my support.”
“I experienced hardcore street life in my youth. I know what it’s like. I congratulate the Street Child World Cup project in it’s commitment to bring attention to the plight of Street Children through the power of football.”
