Right to Play


Right to Play was established in 2000 to protect, educate and empower children to rise above adversity using the power of play in 15 countries. Through this project, the organisation will continue improving safety in schools for 9,000 girls and boys in 30 primary and three secondary schools in the Adjumani District of Uganda in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.

The main focus areas of the project are:

  1. Strengthening school-based child protection mechanisms and school governance structures;
  2. Building capacities of teachers and government education officials on conflict and gender-sensitive play-based approaches;
  3. Encouraging students' engagement in play-based learning activities and life skills; and
  4. Promoting regular engagement and participation of communities and parents in creating a safer learning environment in the communities.
