Street Child Cricket World Cup 2019

Street Child Cricket World Cup initiative uses the power of cricket to bring street children together in a safe space, where they are seen and can speak up. This programme aims to raise awareness and tackle the widespread stigma faced by street children and inspire countries, governments and communities to better protect, respect and support street-children worldwide. Save the Children India brought together ‘Team India North’, which comprises of street children who came from the dock area in urban Kolkata and those living in shelter homes, either away or abandoned by their families. This programme works at improving the lives of children, by providing them with a legal identity, access to education, healthcare, opportunities and platforms to share their voice.
