FROM THE STREETS TO THE LORDS

The first ever SCCWC took place ahead of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, in England and Wales. The finals were played at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London.

The SCCWC provided a level playing field for street-connected children to be seen and their voices to be heard. Street-connected children from eight countries united in spirit to demand their governments and communities to better protect, respect and support street-connected children everywhere.

On the pitch, gender-equal teams represented their countries and played #MoreThanAGame

Off the pitch, the young people made their voices heard and made recommendations to help improve the lives of street children worldwide.
