We use sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome poverty, conflict and disease

 

Through the power of play, we're helping one million children, recognize their potential and realize their dreams. Our programs focus on measurably impacting the three most critical areas of child development: the quality of their education, their ability to stay healthy and their potential to help build peaceful communities.

The foundation for our approach is simple: we create safe environments for children, where they can focus on their social, emotional and physical growth. Guided by our principles on inclusion, child protection and gender equality, we provide kids and their communities with the knowledge and skills they need to create sustainable and beneficial change.
