Short description:
-Right To Play is a humanitarian organization using sport and play programs to encourage the healthy physical, social and emotional development of refugee children, former child combatants, children in conflict areas, and young people at risk or orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Right To Play is committed to improving the lives of these children and to strengthening their communities by translating the best values of sport into opportunities to promote development, health and peace. Right To Play is built on the belief that sport has the power to help create healthier children and safer communities.
-In addition to the physical benefits, sport and play programs enhance holistic development, help foster resilience, and create a meaningful connection between children and adults. Sport and play also teaches important values and life skills including leadership, self-confidence, teamwork, conflict resolution, discipline, respect and fair play. The universal appeal and convening power of sport also provides opportunities to reach children and communities with important health messages.
-Right To Play has programs in 21 countries - Azerbaijan, Benin, Chad, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia, Lebanon, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Pakistan, Palestinian Territories, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, UAE, and Zambia.
