Streetkids United III - The Road to Moscow

Streetkids United III - The Road to Moscow

Streetkids United 3 - The Road To Moscow is the empowering story of 9 Indian girls who are chosen by Karunalaya Social Service Society to represent their country at the Street Child World Cup 2018 in Moscow, Russia.

The girls who all had a rough start living on the streets, where they faced abuse and violence on a daily basis, are an inspiration to everyone who meets them because of their positive and uplifting spirit. They see the event as an opportunity to share to the world their plight. They hope to become a role model for other street children and show that street children are somebody.

The Street Child World Cup 2018 in Moscow brought together more than 200 street-connected children from across the world for their own boys and girls international football tournaments, festival of arts and congress for their rights. The Street Child World Cup uses the power of football to raise awareness and tackle the widespread stigma faced by street-connected children, inspiring countries, governments and communities to better protect, respect and support street-connected children worldwide.

Streetkids United III opened in the UK at the Cambridge Film Festival and won the Silver Punt Audience Award for Best Documentary.
