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. I commend the Street Child World Cup for providing a platform for the rights of street children to be heard.”
“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.”
