Street Child United provides a global platform for street children to be heard so that they receive the protection, support and opportunities all children deserve.
Ahead of the world?s biggest sporting competitions we organise international events inviting street children to be at the centre of the call for their rights. We use the power of sport and the arts to challenge the negative perceptions and treatment of street children transforming lives across the world.
Our flagship event is the Street Child World Cup taking place ahead of the FIFA World Cup. In 2014, 230 former street children from 19 countries came together in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to play football and stand united for the rights of street children.
In March 2016 the Street Child Games are coming?.! Street children from across the world will unite for a week of Olympic-themed sports, a festival of arts and a Congress for street children?s rights. To find out more about how you can get involved, please go to www.streetchildunited.org
