They also made all arrangements to send Pakistani team out to Brazil to participate in the Cup. Cup was first started in 2010 and teams from only 8 countries had participated, this year this number reached to 19.

Pakistanis are very talented, specially those street kids, who are not given enough opportunities to go for basic education or live a normal life like other kids like them. These normally end up involved by child labor by force or by choice, some others get spoiled into professions like buggery and some indulge in criminal activities. But all this not because of they are dull minded but only because they are unprivileged and can’t live normal life like other kids of their age. If given opportunities they can do wonders just like other kids of country who are privileged enough.
