A Day Dedicated to Play

This important milestone marks a global recognition of the importance of play, and we are proud to be one of the founding organisations for the International Day of Play.

For close to 25 years, we have harnessed play to protect, educate, and empower children in some of the world’s most challenging contexts, helping them stay in school and graduate, resist exploitation, overcome prejudice, prevent disease, and heal from the trauma of war and displacement. As conflict, crises, and climate disasters continue to drive millions of children into poverty and marginalisation, our support is now more urgent than ever.

On 11 June 2024, we ask that you join us in celebrating the first-ever International Day of Play.
