This year football fans across the world enjoyed the event in Brazil. Same country hosted the event for Street Children as well, Street Child football World Cup. Pakistan also supported it's less privileged children to go out and compete. All together 19 teams participated in the event. Pakistan Street Children's Team earned the 3rd position. A great moment of joy and pride for the nation and the country that is continuously facing uncertainty in politics, economy and Law & order.
Little Shiny Stars... I call them. These children didn't have much but they gave a lot back to the country. They gave their best. they made us proud.
A non-profit organization supports these children and when they won the bronze in the World Cup several other avenues opened for them. A local bank sponsored them and Pakistani community in Norway invited them to Norway to play a friendly match with a local team. Little Stars beat them too.
