     Supporting such a wonderful cause, Street Child World Cup will kick off on March 30th, Sunday. It is a global campaign that aims to unite children through a beloved game of soccer while sending the message that no child should be living on the streets.   The first Street Child World Cup took place at the last FIFA World Cup in Durban, South Africa 2010. This year the Street Child World Cup (SCWC) will take place in Rio de Janeiro a few months prior to the FIFA World Cup.

     There will be 230 former street children of  ages 14 to 17 from 19 countries: El Salvador, USA, Zimbabwe, Argentina, England, Mozambique, Nicaragua, South Africa, Burundi, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Liberia, Brazil, Egypt, Mauritius, Kenya, Tanzania, and Philippines. ‘This is more than a game’, a messaged delivered by SCWC, provides the message that street children have a voice and deserve the same protection and opportunities of all children. Along with the tournament, there will be an art and theatre as well as conference addressing children’s rights which will aim to confront negative beliefs and treatment towards street children.  Come out and support in children’s rights all over the world.
