"We demand a platform for our voice. Will you listen?"
Team England - #StreetChildCricketWorldCup
Watch the full highlights from finals day at Lords Cricket Ground and share the Teams' messages to help campaign for the rights and protection of street-connected young people.
“If you respect us, you will listen to us. If you listen to us, you will protect us. Please protect us.”
On Tuesday 7 May 2019 young people from eight countries played cricket at Lord’s and demanded the rights of street-connected children everywhere. Team India South won the cricket, but all the young people showed they are champions.
Street Child United would like to say a massive thank you to the young people for being so courageous in sharing their messages and their stories. We’d also like to thank StreetInvest, the Consortium for Street Children and Baker McKenzie for supporting the young people to develop their messages of change. To deliver them at Lord’s, the Home of Cricket, was an incredibly powerful statement that these young people are somebody.
