An example of the frontline impact is the Safe Space soccer program in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil which was built for children at risk of the streets following the Street Child World Cup 2014. Run by our Brazil office, Street Child United employs three coaches from the community who have received training from Coaches Across Continents and the United Nations.
More than 300 children have access to the Safe Space with an average of 45 children using the facility every day. Participation helps each child in their personal development, focused on reducing their risk to violence, exploitation and abuse, developing life skills and improving education, training, and employment opportunities.
Everyone deserves a Safe Space to play. Make a donation to ensure that children at risk of the streets in Rio reach their full potential.
