Help us send Street Child Team Nepal to the Street Child United World Cup and transform their education and future. The event unites street-connected young people from across the world to take part in a football tournament, a festival of arts, and advocate for street children's rights and protection. The event will highlight the challenges street-connected children face on a daily basis, including their limited access to education, risk of exploitation, and constant threats of violence.
40% of the Nepal population is under the age of 18 years, and children across the country are constantly facing the dangers of sleeping on the street. Street-connected children are some of the most vulnerable in Nepal, particularly exposed to life-threatening risks such as severe hunger, exploitation, abuse, alcohol and drug misuse, and treacherous weather conditions.
The Street Child United World Cup will unite street-connected young people from across the world to take part in a football tournament, a festival of arts, and a child-focused Congress and General Assembly advocating for street children's rights and protection. The ten-day event in Doha in October 2022 will be the fifth time this event is delivered, utilising the power of sport to achieve social change and bring attention to the experiences of street-connected children from across the world.
We believe this event is an opportunity. An opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of street-connected children in Nepal. And that means our support doesn't stop after the final whistle in Doha. Using this event as a catalyst, we aim to establish a holistic sports and education programme for street-connected young people in Nepal - utilising the power of sport to ensure more children are safe, in school, and learning. Together, we can help keep children safe, in school, and learning.
