Larry Mullen Jr supports Street Child World Cup

@U2, February 28, 2014
By: Fernanda Bottini


Larry Mullen Jr. is supporting the Street Child World Cup, a global movement for street children to receive the protection and opportunities that all children are entitled to. Ahead of each FIFA World Cup, street children from five continents are united to play football and join an international conference.

Next Monday, 1.500 school children will take over Royal Albert Hall to attempt to break the world record for the world's largest samba band and bang the drum for street children's rigts.

The event marks the U.K. launch of the second Street Child World Cup, kicking off in Rio de Janeiro on March 28.

Larry said a few words for the children:

When I was a kid in the '70s growing up in Artane, Dublin, Pelé was my hero. When I slept I dreamt of being a full forward, being up front, the striker. When I woke up I was the goalkeeper for a rock 'n' roll band.

Never stop dreaming.

Now go break that Samba World Record - and best of luck for the Street Children World Cup.

No child should ever have to live on the streets.
