    Summer camp for street children in Pakistan

    We're helping children in Pakistan experience the transformative power of sport and play

    In late July, we held a four-day summer camp gathering school children from poorer areas in Islamabad to provide a chance for them to have fun, while teaching life skills like teamwork, fair play and trust. Our programs reach 16 districts across Pakistan and more than 169,000 children in the country, but one child summed up his Right To Play experience best: "What we are learning today is not in any of our books."

    Many media outlets in Pakistan took notice. Click below to read more about this amazing event.
