Streetchild World Cup, Doha
In 2022, Oltalom Sport Association will represent Hungary at the Street Child World Cup in Doha, which will be the country’s first appearance in the history of the tournament. Every four year, Street Child World Cup is organized by the UK based Street Child United for street connected children. During the ten days long event children will not only play football but will also participate in an Art Festival as well as in a congress which focuses on the situation of street connected children all over the world. The World Cup will take place between the 7th and 16th of October in Qatar, which is also the venue of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Participating in the Street Child World Cup not only enables youngsters between the age of 14 and 17 to meet and play with different teams on the football pitch, but with the Arts Festival and Congress, serves as an unique opportunity to create a platform, where, joined by their peers, young people from all over the world can think and act together to make some noise and raise awareness towards the situation of street connected children and share their thought on how their situation can be improved.
Preparation of players and staff members (coaches, social workers) for the tournament has already been started in 2021. Besides the regular football training, children will be familiarized with child rights in the framework of workshops designed specifically for them. The Association is implementing an advocacy plan focusing on the reduction of domestic violence. Furthermore, staff members have participated in several seminars focusing on child safeguarding, PR and communication as well as logistic affairs, which will continue until the departure of the team in October.
