Right To Play, USA

New York, New York 10001


Mission & Goals:

Play is not a luxury; it is a tool for education and health. It can bring entire communities together and inspire every individual. A game of football can teach children about tolerance and peace, a game of tag can teach about malaria. Play helps teach important life lessons and develop skills like cooperation, leadership and teamwork. Right To Play is a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. It was founded in 2000 by Johann Olav Koss, a four-time Olympic gold medalist and social entrepreneur. Through sports and games, we help children build essential life skills and better futures, while driving social change in their communities with lasting impact. We promote the involvement of all children and youth. That’s why we are working in the most disadvantaged areas engaging girls, persons with disabilities, children affected by HIV and AIDS, street children, former child combatants and refugees. We reach one million children in regular weekly activities and 49% of those children are female. Right To Play programs currently operate in Benin, Burundi, Canada, China, Ethiopia, Ghana, Jordan, Lebanon, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Pakistan, Palestinian Territories (West Bank and Gaza), Peru, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Thailand and Uganda.

How your contribution helps:

We give children a chance to become constructive participants in society, regardless of gender, disability, ethnicity, social background or religion. Through games and sports, we help create social change in communities affected by war, poverty and disease.
