“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. I commend the Street Child World Cup for providing a platform for the rights of street children to be heard.”
“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.”
“No child should have to live on the streets and I fully endorse this campaign giving street children a voice to claim their rights”
