Started in 2014 as a part of CRY’s Slum Children Sports Talent Education Development Society (SC STEDS), Soccer for Child Rights is an annual event that aims at bridging the gap between two strata of our society through sports. Employees from corporates participate to play against the star players of SC STEDS, while also using the platform to network with each other.  Our star players of SC STEDS have each been child beneficiary from slums of Vyasarpadi, Chennai and Soccer has changed each of their life forever.

Hailed as one-of-a-kind and one of the most professionally managed initiatives, Soccer for Child Rights is more than just an event, it is an exchange of inspiration, stories, courage, and hope; all over a friendly game of football.

SCSTEDS - Implementing Partner working with children in slums of Vyasarpadi Chennai.

The thrust of the SCSTED’s interventions, since its inception in 2000, is on increasing participation of the children and youth, for development of the slums. The organization envisages empowering marginalized children and communities – the Dalits and Women through the use of alternative strategies, pro-active interventions and rights based approach on to build up a critical and liberal society where rights of children are ensured.

The project employs sport (particularly football) as a catalyst to drive social change in the marginalized communities; with the aim to promote social and collective responsibility. Interest in sport is inculcated amongst children through professional coaching – which is in turn used as a platform to improve the status of education and check child labour in the project area.

Join us on 15th July 2017 at FSV Arena, Hennur Cross, Bangalore! Cheer for the teams, shout out to underpriviledged children across India in support of their rights!

Support the SC STEDS and underpriviledged children across India by donating to Soccer for Child Rights!
