Street Children World Cup (SCWC) is being played between teams of most unprivileged, most disadvantaged street children from 19 countries. Its being held in Brazil and along with game of football it also include art competitions, sightseeing tours as well as workshops for these children.
After some tremendous victories Pakistan Street children team had reached semifinal of football game in SCWC. Those victories also include an ineradicable victory against India with 13-0 score. However this Pakistani team lost their football semifinal against Burundi (a South African country). However, one fact we must have in our mind these were most unprivileged street children of Pakistan, who didn’t had any practice matches or stuff back at home, so even by reaching semifinals they proved that even street children of Pakistan are very talented. They just need the right opportunities to make a name for themselves and their country.
Race for this Pakistani Street Children team is however not ended yet, they still have to play a game against a similar team from United States to claim the third spot in the tournament.

Pakistani children who are participating, are sponsored by Unicef, Azad Foundation and British Council, so that they can participate into the Cup. They also made all arrangements to send Pakistani team out to Brazil to participate in the Cup. Cup was first started in 2010 and teams from only 8 countries had participated, this year this number reached to 19.
Pakistanis are very talented, specially those street kids, who are not given enough opportunities to go for basic education or live a normal life like other kids like them. These normally end up involved by child labor by force or by choice, some others get spoiled into professions like buggery and some indulge in criminal activities. But all this not because of they are dull minded but only because they are unprivileged and can’t live normal life like other kids of their age. If given opportunities they can do wonders just like other kids of country who are privileged enough.
