    Right To Play is the leading international humanitarian and development organization using the transformative power of sport and play to build essential skills in children and thereby drive social change in communities affected by war, poverty and disease. Right To Play creates a safe place for children to learn and fosters the hope that is essential for children to envision and realize a better future. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child guides our work. Right To Play programs target the most marginalized individuals including girls, persons with disabilities, children affected by HIV and AIDS, street children, former child combatants and refugees.

    Right To Play has been a pioneer in innovation for social change and has a track record for creating programs that are both sustainable and replicable.
    What We Do: Working in both the humanitarian and development context, Right To Play trains local community leaders as Coaches to deliver our programs in 23 countries affected by war, poverty and disease in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and South America. Our programs incorporate a unique methodology that uses sport and play as tools for learning in four development impact areas:

    1. Basic Education and Child Development: Right To Play’s sport and play programs foster the physical, cognitive and social development of children to teach important values and life skills.

    2. Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: Right To Play’s sport and play programs are used to educate and mobilize communities around national health and disease prevention priorities, including HIV and AIDS, malaria and immunization.

    3. Conflict Resolution and Peace Building: Our programs are tools for teaching conflict resolution and peace building skills. Participation in regular activities facilitates the healing of communities and reintegration of children affected by war.

    4. Community Development and Participation: In order to create change and have a sustainable impact, we work in partnership with local organizations to build community infrastructure through the engagement of local staff and local and international volunteers.

    Reach: By mid 2009, Right To Play reached more than 688,000 children in weekly regular sport and play activities, with a combined total of more than 1 million children in regular programming and special sports events and festivals. These activities were facilitated by more than 15,000 local Coaches/Teachers/ Leaders.

    Participation of girls and women in our programs remained high throughout 2008. Almost 50 per cent of children participating were girls and more than 50 per cent of Coaches/Teachers/ Leaders were female
    Right To Play helps over 700,000 children every week- our aim is to reach 1 million by 2012.
