The UN recognizes play as the right of every child.  Play is NOT a luxury; it is a tool for education and health.  It can bring entire communities together and inspire every individual. A game of football can teach children about tolerance and peace, and a game of tag can teach about malaria.  Play helps teach important life lessons and develop skills like cooperation, leadership, and teamwork.
