Streetkids United 3 – The Road to Moscow

Streetkids United 3 – The Road to Moscow

Jacco Groen, Jamillah van der Hulst
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.
