April 6, Right To Play joined the rest of the world to celebrate the
first-ever International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.
In Sukothai, Thailand, with the support of the Thai Ministry of
Education, Right To Play trained 60 health and physical education
teachers using our Football for Development resource—participating in our play-based training to help children in their schools learn through sport and play.
Occuring during their summer break, the teachers came from several
different schools and were trained by both our staff and the Ministry,
with a focus on drug prevention for school-aged children.
As part of the day’s ceremonies, Right To Play representatives
spoke about the significance of the first ever IDSDP, followed by
a video message from President and CEO Johann Koss.
After the presentation, all 60 teachers signed the IDSDP banner,
showing a symbolic commitment to bringing the Sport for Development and
Peace movement back to their respective schools.
