Protect. Educate. Empower.

It's what we do for 1.9 million children each week.

This is what the power of play can do:

  • Keeping girls safe

    Peer violence against girls, a challenge in many schools in Pakistan, was reduced by 56% through Right To Play programs.

  • Giving girls a voice

    In Mali, 96% of our teachers make sure that girls voices and opinions are heard in the classroom every day. Only 70% of teachers of non-Right To Play teachers do this.

  • Say No to Unwanted Sex

    In Tanzania, 59% of girls in our programs believe they can say no to unwanted sex after 18 months of programming vs. just 13% before our programs.

  • Building peaceful communities

    In conflict torn Burundi, 83% of children in Right To Play programs have significantly increased their peacebuilding and conflict resolution skills vs 47% in non Right To Play programs.

  • Preventing HIV

    In Uganda, 92% of children in our programs know how to prevent transmission of HIV vs. 50% of children not in our programs.

  • Girls taking the lead

    In Jordan, 77% of girls participating in Right To Play’s programs said they felt empowered to take leadership roles in their schools & communities.

We bring the power of play to 15 countries, each with their own set of challenges for children.

In these countries, we empower girls to resist early marriage and to continue their education. We teach children how to protect themselves from diseases like HIV and malaria. We help child laborers return to school. And we inspire refugee youth living in dire camp conditions to heal and succeed.
