Mission

Right To Play's mission is to use sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict, and disease in disadvantaged communities.

Description

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.
