Street Child Games – Rio – 14 – 20 March 2016

What we do

The issue

The UN estimates there are 150 million children at risk of the streets; these are children living on, working in or at risk of the streets.

These children and young people are often stigmatised, mistreated and marginalised by society. They are routinely denied their basic human rights.

Their voices are rarely heard.

We are Street Child United

We use the power of sport to provide a global platform for street children to be heard, so they can receive the protection, support and opportunities that every child is entitled to.

Ahead of the world's biggest sporting competitions we organise international events (like the Street Child Games) inviting street children to be at the centre of the call for their rights - challenging the negative perceptions and treatment of street children worldwide.
