Gianluca Vialli supports Street Child’s work in West Africa where the charity uses football to keep children away from street life and back into family homes and school. 

Today, the former Chelsea star announced his role as ambassador of ‘Team Liberia’, a team of former street children, who with the support of UK charity Street Child, are travelling to Rio this week to take part in the Street Child World Cup.

Street Child are taking a team of nine former street boys from Liberia to take part in the international football tournament; the Street Child World Cup. Gianluca is the teams ambassador, working with Street Child to raise awareness of the issues that face children on the streets and the importance that football plays in helping get them back to school. 

Last week Street Child announced the launch of its Every Child in School appeal. All donations to the appeal will be matched pound for pound by the government - a huge boost for children like those in Team Liberia.

Vialli said “the public have the chance to help some of the worlds poorest children go to school and for the next 3 months donations to this campaign will be doubled by the UK Government”.

Support Gianluca Vialli and Street Child and donate £3 a month to help thousands of children leave the streets and go to school. Text STREETCHILD £3 to 70707 or visit www.street-child.co.uk for more details.

All donations for the next three months are set to be doubled by the UK Government through UK Aid Match.
