Homeless World Cup

The Homeless World Cup was founded by Mel Young (a Schwab Fellow of the World Economic Forum) to use football as a way to end homelessness.

“To beat homelessness through football. There are one billion homeless people in the world today. Our vision is of a healthy confident world where everyone has a home.”

What they do:
* Uses football to energise homeless people to change their own lives while developing innovative, effective solutions to homelessness worldwide.

* Operates through a network of 70+ national partners to support football programs and social enterprise development.

* Works year-round running an annual, international football tournament (Homeless World Cup!) that unites teams of homeless people from countries around the globe.
