Right To Play is a global organisation that protects, educates and empowers children to rise above adversity using play. By harnessing play, one of the most powerful and fundamental forces in a child’s life, we helped 2.3 million children last year to stay in school and out of work, to prevent life-threatening diseases like HIV and malaria and to stay safe from exploitation and abuse. We are the only global development organization focused exclusively on using play to transform the lives of children and youth impacted by poverty, war, disease and inequality.
Established in 2000, Right To Play reaches children through experiential programming in 15 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and North America. These programs are supported by our headquarters in Toronto, Canada; London, UK and eight national offices across Europe (Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, UK) and North America (Canada, US).
EMPOWER is a 4.5-year project in Mali funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC). Implemented in the regions of Mopti and Gao through local women-led and Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) led organizations, EMPOWER is a gender responsive and inclusive project that will leverage adaptive management approaches to operate effectively within Mali’s fragile environment. The project’s ultimate outcome is improved literacy and life skills for host and internally displaced children ages 6-12, especially girls and children living with disabilities (CLWDs). To advance its ultimate outcome, the project will achieve the following intermediate outcomes:
I. Improved performance of local IDP and women-led organizations working on gender responsive education.
II. Increased access to gender responsive and inclusive quality education for host and internally displaced children, particularly girls and CLWDs
III. Enhanced collective action of local IDP and women-led organizations to advance the right to gender responsive quality education for host and internally displaced children, particularly girls and CLWDs.
