We are a small charity with very big ambitions. We have a team in an office in East London, England, and in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We are the heart of a huge global family trying to change the world for street children.
We champion millions of street children across the world showing the world that they are somebodies.
We work with an outstanding network of grassroots partners working on the front line with street children everyday.
We collaborate with an incredible network of diverse partners from artists and musicians, international charities and corporate partners, faith groups and football clubs, media outlets and events, schools and clubs, policy makers and experts who all share our vision.
We are a team of blue t-shirted volunteers based around the world dedicated to ensuring the voices of street children are heard.
We are a community supporting, sharing and shouting about what we do and what needs to be done to help children on the streets.
Together we’re a movement challenging the negative perceptions and treatment of street children so they can receive the protection, support and opportunities all children are entitled to. And we’re stronger with you.
“It was possible to gather many nationalities, cultures, and form a nation: a nation of free man, with equal rights and opportunities, mutual respect, rightful duties. It was 10 days when the world, in that corner of Rio, was fair to socially excluded children; they could feel the beauty of being somebody in this world.”
“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.”
