Jeremy Irons Attends Street Child Cricket World Cup

Ahead of the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup, 10 teams of street girls and boys from across the world had an amazing opportunity to travel to London to compete in their own Cricket World Cup event (SCCWC), from 30th April to 7th May. The Hope Foundation was invited to bring a team of street connected children who are in their care from Kolkata, to represent India.

As well as being an exciting sports event that attracted global media attention, SCCWC provided an international platform to raise awareness of, and tackle the stigma and negative treatment often faced by street connected children. The young people selected to participate had a unique opportunity to build their confidence, teamwork and leadership skills, and most importantly, will be given a voice for street children worldwide.

As a patron of The Hope Foundation, Jeremy Irons attended the SCCWC on Tuesday 7 May 2019, at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London.
