Cricket is the world’s second most popular sport, played by over 120 million people and loved by 3 billion fans worldwide. With the world looking to England and Wales in 2019 for the ICC Cricket World Cup, the Street Child Cricket World Cup will provide a level playing field for street-connected children to be seen and their voices heard – inspiring their countries and communities to better protect, respect and support street children everywhere.
The first ever Cricket World Cup for street-connected children will take place ahead of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales. The Street Child Cricket World Cup will unite street children from around the world to play in their own international cricket tournament to raise awareness and tackle the widespread stigma and negative treatment they face.
On the pitch, 10 national teams, both girls and boys, will represent their countries. Off the pitch, the young people will make their voices heard and make recommendations to help improve the lives of street children worldwide.
The cricket stalwart Sourav Ganguly has joined us as the Goodwill Ambassador - Team India for the Street Child Cricket World Cup 2019. His support will add significant momentum to the cause of #TheInvisibles and give an incomparable encouragement to the team. Through his support and guidance, we aim to strengthen the team's spirit, focus, passion, and commitment to the game. Street Child Cricket World Cup is more than a game, it is a lifetime opportunity for these children living on the streets, to make themselves truly visible and give a voice to the issues they face on an everyday basis.
