Terre des Hommes announces: “Children WIN – Changing the Game of Mega Sporting Events”

Release: a guide for journalists to keep children safe in media work and a 60 seconds teaser announcing a documentary film on the effects of the FIFA World Cup™ through the eyes of children.

Geneva, 11th June 2014 – The 2014 FIFA World Cup’s™ kick-off is just around the corner.

International press is increasingly reporting on FIFA’s scandals and on social tensions in Brazil. The impact of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ on poor children in Brazil is not properly documented nor duly reported.

To address this, Terre des Hommes is launching Children WIN, a project about the social impact on children of Mega Sporting Events, and an appeal to listen to the voices of Brazilian children around the FIFA World Cup™. From Brazil, Terre des Hommes releases investigative journalism, documentaries and a guide for journalists on how to keep children safe in media work.

All housed at the new website: www.childrenwin.org
