To mark the International Day for Street Children our team from Brazil took football to the lawns of Westminster to raise awareness of those young people still living and working on the streets. The young people were given a guided historical tour of the Houses of Parliament before raising a banner they had made on Parliament Green.
“No child should have to live on the streets and I fully endorse this campaign giving street children a voice to claim their rights”
“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.”
“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.”
