What we do

    Children playing in Uganda.

Right To Play transforms the lives of two million disadvantaged children every week across Africa, the Middle East and Asia through the power of sport and play.

We train local community leaders and teachers to become volunteer Coaches. They then coach children in specially designed games.

As the children develop and learn new skills, they pass these on to other community members and often go on to become Coaches themselves.

Our programmes are sustainable and ensure long-term development. When children and young people gain new skills, they have the ability to pass these on to future generations, thus ensuring lasting change.


57 million prinary school aged children do not attend school.


​One billion children across the world live in conflict affected areas.

Ensuring a gender balance
Women and girls are often the poorest and most vulnerable of the people we encounter in our work.​

More than half of early child deaths are preventable or treatable.
