the power of play

Participation is no small thing. For children living in the most challenging circumstances, participation is more than a ribbon: it's an opportunity to break down barriers and create a better future.

At Right To Play, play is about more than fun and games. We play to protect, educate, and empower children to overcome adversity.

Check out some examples below of games we use every day in classrooms and programs around the world!

Building Concentration Through Games

But if it's not a fruit and they say "fruit", then they're out of the game! This video is from a Right To Play-supported Girls Club in Ghana. Learn about Right To Play Girls Clubs.
