Success for Whitehouse Scientific-sponsored football team at inaugural Street Child World Cup

WHITE JOB 238_Image.jpgIn March 2010, Whitehouse Scientific co-sponsored the Philippines national team in the inaugural Deloitte Street Child World Cup held in Durban, South Africa. The tournament marked the launch of a new initiative from the Amos Trust, an organisation that works with a network of community projects from around the world to raise awareness of, and provide support to address injustice and poverty. 

Dr Graham Rideal, managing director of Whitehouse Scientific, takes a very active role in working with street children in the Philippines. "The highlight for the team was their 6 - 2 win over a skilful Brazil side, which made front page headlines in most of the Philippines news papers," he said. "Whitehouse Scientific is proud to have been able to help the team to participate in this fantastic tournament." 

As well as beating Brazil, the Philippines team competed against the United Kingdom, Tanzania, Ukraine and South Africa, winning the Street Child World Shield Final. 

"The event exceeded all our expectations," said Gary Mabbutt, former Tottenham Hotspur Captain and England International, who is the ambassador from FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) for the Street Child World Cup. "As well as being a great sporting occasion it also highlighted the need for an international resolution to recognise the rights of street children around the world." 

Other supporters of the tournament include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, actress Thandie Newton, England Internationals David Beckham and Theo Walcott, and Manchester United Manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Street Child World Cup is one of a number of children's charities that Dr Rideal and Whitehouse Scientific have supported over recent years, from Children in Need in the UK to work in Mongolia and Manila.
