Right To Play Uganda’s programs improve children’s access to quality education, teach health awareness around issues such as HIV/AIDS and disease prevention, encourage gender equality and advance peacebuilding behaviours.
We strengthen refugee children’s ability to deal with displacement and conflict and to process and overcome traumas. Our programs teach tolerance and communication, especially important in refugee camps where recurring tribal tensions tear at the fabric of children’s lives.
We also focus on Uganda’s other vulnerable areas, informal settlements and slums. Right To Play programs equip at-risk children with improved education and life skills, boosting their abilities to communicate and problem-solve issues that affect their communities.
In addition, Right To Play Uganda has helped to rehabilitate schools to accommodate more students, provide nutritious meals and deliver better water, sanitation practices and hygiene facilities, empowering more children to rise and turn their nation into one of solutions.
