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
“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.”
“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 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.”
