The Street Child World Cup is a global movement that brings together street-connected children from five continents in preparation for the FIFIA World Cup. The tournament provides a platform for championing street children’s rights – the right to identity, the right to protection from violence, and the right to education – as well as challenging negative perceptions and treatment of street children worldwide.
Pakistan’s next opponent in the Street Child Football World Cup 2022 will be Burundi. The Street Child World Cup is being held in Qatar from October 7 to 15 under the auspices of Street Child United, a non-profit organisation.
The tournament features a total of 26 teams, including street children with talent and a passion for football.
The Muslim Hands street child football team finished third in the World Cup in Brazil in 2014 and the Norway Cup in 2015. The same team finished third in the Gothia Cup in China in 2016.
