About Right To Play

Right To Play is a global organization 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, Right To Play helps 1.9 million children each week 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. Right To Play is 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, the organization is headquartered in Toronto, Canada and operates in 22 countries across North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.

Right To Play has been active in the education and sports for development sectors in Jordan since 2006, training teachers in UNRWA and Ministry of Education schools as well as coaches in local communities to provide engaging interactive sessions that utilize games and sports for development methodology. Vulnerable Jordanian, Palestinian, and Syrian children who take part in Right To Play play days and tournaments are more engaged in school and have vastly improved life skills. In turn, the youth with whom Right To Play works achieve higher grades, experience greater levels of cooperation and cohesion, and are empowered to overcome trauma, adversity, and cultural stigmas to fulfil their dreams.

Right To Play’s Culture Code guides how its staff act and interact based on five core pillars:

  • Accept Everyone – Be intentional about inclusion
  • Make Things Happen – Seek opportunities to lead and innovate
  • Display Courage – Act with integrity
  • Demonstrate Care – Look after yourself and one another
  • Be Playful – Have fun at work
