We are delighted about the new global Sustainable Development Goals recently unveiled by the United Nations. With an increased global focus on the key areas in which we work, we hope to reach and benefit even more children through our unique sport- and play-based programmes.
There are four Global Goals that particularly resonate with our mission to educate and empower children and young people to overcome poverty, conflict and disease:
By integrating play into schools, we're creating the learning environments and opportunities for children to excel. Children's motivation to learn and absorb more information increases leading to better attendance, enrolment and academic performance.
Children learn how to stay healthy and protect themselves against diseases through our games. While having fun, they are also learning practical lessons, like hand-washing, how to use mosquito nets and how to prevent HIV/AIDS. And the best part: they're sharing what they've learned with their family and friends.
