Paris event offers hope

We travel to France to find out how the 2011 Homeless World Cup helped to change lives.

For one week in August 2011, 64 teams of male and female players were given a platform on which they could start to change their lives forever. The ninth edition of the UEFA-supported Homeless World Cup took place in Paris, featuring more than 300 street soccer matches. We speak to those involved to find out about the impact of the event on their lives.
