We believe that the power of play can transform a child’s life. That’s why we provide over one million children with the tools they need to protect themselves from disease, to encourage them to attend and stay in school and to resolve conflict and create peaceful communities.
The UN recognizes play as the right of every child. It is NOT a luxury; it is a tool for learning. Girls, persons with disabilities, children affected by HIV & AIDS, street children, former child combatants and refugees all deserve the chance to grow through play. A game of football can teach children about tolerance and peace; a game of tag can teach about malaria. Play develops skills like cooperation, leadership and teamwork. It can bring entire communities together and inspire every individual.
