Right To Play International

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 in 20 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and South America. Right To Play incorporates a unique methodology that uses sport and play as tools for learning, creating a safe place for children to learn, and fostering the hope that is essential for children to envision and realize a better future. Right To Play programs target marginalized individuals including girls, persons with disabilities, children affected by HIV and AIDS, street children, former child combatants and refugees.

Right To Play programs are guided by the principles of inclusion and sustainability:

  • Inclusion promotes the involvement of children and youth who may be marginalized for reasons of gender, disability, ethnicity, social background or religion. We believe that through well-designed games and sports, attitudes contributing toward a child’s exclusion from meaningful participation in society will change.
  • Sustainability ensures our programs have a lasting impact and centres on building the capacity of individuals, communities and partner organizations to independently deliver, on an ongoing basis, learning objectives through regular sport and play activities.
