Reena used to hide the fact that she played football from her parents. Now she is encouraging other young girls to play the sport.
Please make a donation today to help people who are homeless and help continue our work.
The 15th edition of the Homeless World Cup took place in Oslo’s iconic Rådhusplassen, The City Hall Square, between Oslo City Hall and Oslo Fjord, from 29 August – 5 September.
Our street football partners operate in 450 locations, reaching 100,000 homeless people every year. So far, the Homeless World Cup and its partners have impacted the lives of 1 million homeless people around the globe.
An estimated 100 million people are homeless worldwide. As many as 1.6 billion people lack access to adequate housing.
When a homeless person becomes involved in football, they build relationships. Football brings structure, support and a place of belonging. This works as a catalyst for positive change.
Each year, homeless people who were invisible on the streets become heroes on the pitch, standing proud representing their country as their lives are changed forever.
With your support, we can continue to inspire more people and make positive change around the globe.
