Street Child World Cup 2014 – Team Nicaragua
Regular followers of my blog will remember that back in November 2013 I travelled to Nicaragua to learn about the country’s chosen teams for the Street Child World Cup 2014. I went on behalf of the Methodist Church and spent two weeks with three young Methodists from the UK finding out all about the great work of Casa Alianza, a project that supports children living on the streets and helps them rebuild their lives. Casa Alianza is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to the rehabilitation and defence of street children in Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Guatemala. Seeing the work was humbling. I am now proud to say that both the boys and the girl’s teams have got off to a flying start in Brazil.
This video is a great introduction to the Street Child World Cup and I encourage you all to take a look to find out more about the work – it does a better job of explaining all the amazing things going on than I could!
Over the next week I am going to post some images from my time in Nicaragua and share some of the work going on there with children living on the streets. This week I focus on some of the activities that take place at Casa Alianza…..
