Give a ribbon and transform a child’s life
Every day, millions of children face terrible adversity. Child labour, early marriage, war, displacement, and intergenerational trauma conspire to keep children from their childhood, and their futures. Participating in play can help children overcome trauma and discrimination, get back to learning, and claim their rights and their dreams. Give children the life-changing gift of participation.
This ribbon can help pull a child out of dangerous, illegal work
No child should be forced to do dangerous manual labour. We work with parents, teachers, and communities to get children out of work and into school. Participating in play-based learning makes catching up on learning fun and engaging. Give a child the life-changing gift of participation.
This ribbon can help a child overcome the trauma of displacement
Right now, millions of children are living in refugee camps and conflict zones. Play helps children cope with fear and anxiety, express their emotions, and heal from trauma. Give a child the life-changing gift of participation.
This ribbon can help a girl access the education she deserves
Girls around the world are kept out of school by early marriage, pregnancy, and gender discrimination. Participating in playful, inclusive classrooms helps them develop confidence, claim their rights, and pursue their dreams of a brighter and more equal future. Give a girl the life-changing gift of participation.
This ribbon can help an Indigenous youth find their voice
Indigenous youth across Canada are faced with isolation from their culture and peers due to the ongoing legacy of colonialism and residential schools. Participating in community-led, culturally relevant play-based programs empower First Nations, Inuit and Metis Youth to thrive. Give the gift of participation today.
