Journey with us from the street to the stadium

India is hosting the 2023 Street Child Cricket World Cup. As reigning champions, Karunalaya wants to use the event to end gender-based violence against girls and women living on Chennai’s streets and equip them to live the lives they dream of. We are working with them to achieve this, but we cannot do it without you.

    Karunalaya are addressing the impact of gender-based violence on girls’ lives by providing 1:1 support, sheltered accommodation and counselling.

  3. Teaching
    Karunalaya are providing street-based classes in pavement-dwelling communities around the issues affecting girls, such as child marriage.

  4. Transforming

  5. Equipping
    Karunalaya are equipping pavement-dwelling communities to claim their rights and to address issues like gender-based violence through community initiatives such as the women-led campaign “Niruthuda”, which in Tamil means “Man Stop It!” 

  6. Educating

India is hosting the Street Child Cricket World Cup in 2023
Our partner Karunalaya and Amos Trust will use this platform to raise awareness of gender-based violence and the steps needed to stop it and equipping girls and young women to live the lives they dream of.

But we cannot do this without your support.

Cricket has changed my life completely. Because nobody respected us when we were living on the streets. But now, because of cricket, it has changed my life. Now people respect us. Monisha
