Mission and Goals

Right To Play is a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. Through weekly sport and play activities, Right To Play helps over one million children learn to create better futures and drive social change. Operating in more than 20 countries, Right To Play was founded in 2000 by social entrepreneur and four-time Olympic gold medalist Johann Olav Koss.

We are committed to improving the lives of girls and boys affected by conflict, disease and poverty. Playing can among others teach the importance of hygiene, leadership, tolerance and peace; for example can a game of tag teach children how to protect themselves, and their families from malaria.

Programming in Canada includes Youth To Youth (Y2Y), a Toronto-based peer-to-peer youth leadership program, and the Promoting Life-skills in Aboriginal Youth (PLAY) program, which reaches more than 90 First Nations communities and urban Aboriginal organizations across Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia. PLAY engages nearly 5,000 Indigenous youth nationwide in dynamic, play-based programming focused on building resiliency and improving health, employability and educational attainment.

Right To Play reach over 1 million children each and every week, 50% of this children are girls. By choosing Right to Play as your EchoAge birthday party you will make it possible for us to offer play-based programming that helps even more children gain confidence, embrace gender equality, and develop life skills like conflict resolution.

“Kids love to play. It’s a human right and when you introduce the opportunity to learn using play, it becomes a very powerful tool.”

Rosie MacLennan, Olympic trampoline medalist, Right to Play Ambassador.

"I know that I learn so much and have fun when playing with my friends at school so I'm glad I can help other kids learn through play too!"
