In 2010 the Street Child World Cup welcomed a Ukrainian team from Depaul International, Ukraine. We recently caught up with four of the team who you might remember.
These four are Pasha, Tanya and Artem (pictured) who live with one foster-family and Sascha who lives with another family close by. Please take five minutes to hear from them https://vimeo.com/44303619
“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.”
“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.”
“When ever people come across me they laugh. It seems like my mouth is zipped because they talk for us. I wish they could give us a chance to talk for ourselves.”
