Right to Play's Mission is to use sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease in disadvantaged communities. As a global pioneer in the field of Sport for Development, the organisation reaches 1 million children globally through structured sport and play programming in over 15 countries of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
Right To Play’s Sport for Development methodology believes in engaging children and youth in regular play based activities led by trained young Coaches. These activities are purposefully designed to integrate life skills among children such as cooperation, communication, team work and critical thinking.
In Pakistan, Right To Play is working on similar structured programs in 14 districts/locations engaging over 160,000 children and youth on a regular basis, 50% of these program participants are female.
The Goal curriculum will be implemented in Government partner schools in the Lyari and Shirin Jinnah areas of Karachi, and approximately 1500 adolescent girls will be reached on a weekly basis. Right to Play will also engage girls through football tournaments and hold football Play Days in local community to engage more girls.
