Brazil hosts World Cup for street children

Ahead of the football World Cup, children from around the globe participated in their own tournament.

As excitement builds over the football World Cup, younger athletes are also getting into the action. Street children from around the world travelled to Brazil, to participate in their own international football tournament.

The World Cup in Brazil brought together teams of street children from all over the world – the Philippines, Burundi, Nicaragua, the United States and the eventual winners, Tanzania. They ate together and chatted, through translators, about their different cultures and their shared problems.
