Right to Play is a global organization that uses play to teach kids to through sports and games how to get important life skills and build a better future. The UN thinks play is the right of every child. 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. Playing also helps teach important life lessons and develop skills like cooperation, leadership and teamwork. Play provides a break from bad things and brings joy and laughter, allowing kids to be kids. We reach one million children in regular weekly activities and 49% of those children are female. Right To Play is in more than 20 countries. It is run by coaches and teachers and even athletes from more than 40 countries. IT IS A REALLY COOL ORGANIZATION!! You can get involved by donating or signing up to their newsletter. So from now on REMEMBER RIGHT TO PLAY WHEN PLAYING WITH ANYONE.
