Who we are

The Homeless World Cup Foundation is a unique, pioneering charity which uses football to inspire people who are homeless to change their own lives.

Our Vision is for a world without homelessness.

Our Mission is to use football to support and inspire people who are homeless to change their own lives; and to change perceptions and attitudes towards people who are experiencing homelessness.

The Cause

Getting an accurate picture of global homelessness is extremely challenging as definitions of homelessness vary from country to country.

Following a United Nations survey on global homelessness in 2005, there are an estimated 100 million homeless people worldwide, and as many as 1.6 billion people lacking adequate housing (UN, 2005).

Impact

A survey of Homeless World Cup players showed that:

94%
Say the Homeless World Cup positively impacted their lives.
83%
Improved social relations with family and friends
77%
Changed their lives signifficantly
71%
Continue to play the sport

The impact of the Homeless World Cup Foundation extends far beyond the 500 players who attend the annual event.
