Let Her Play
When girls play, it’s the first step in their journey to becoming powerful, independent women. It sounds simple, but playing ignites a girl’s abilities to take charge of her own life. Sign up to receive some of the real games that girls play in our programs. You can play them with a girl in your life and see for yourself what she learns.
Bridging the Gaps Caused by Displacement
Displacement creates many gaps in children’s lives: children who are refugees are more likely to be out of school than their peers. They are more likely to experience fear, anxiety, and other mental health issues. It can be easy to lose hope.
ENCOURAGING TINKERING AND BUILDING SKILLS IN CHILDREN
The Plug in Play program is turning the classroom into a playful place where students make, tinker, and code together, exploring the world through their hands and imaginations, and developing academic and holistic skills that support lifelong learning and success.
Strengthening literacy and attitudes towards equality
In Mozambique, only 4% of children in third grade read at a grade-appropriate level. But in Namaacha, where this Reading Club operates, things are changing. After school, Reading Club Instructors use games and play-based activities to help children strengthen their understanding of core literacy concepts and practice their reading skills.
Protecting Children’s Safety and Emotional Well-being Through Play
Child Protection Specialist Huda Ghalegolabi speaks about the impact of conflict and displacement on children, and how play-based psychosocial support programs can help protect children from further harm by enabling them to cope and recover.
How parents are supporting children’s learning and development with play
Through Play to Grow, parents learn about more than their children’s social-emotional and educational developmental needs, and they learn skills and strategies to address those needs themselves.

Help Children Recover from the Pakistan Floods
Pakistan is in crisis from the destruction caused by historic flooding. We are responding by providing mental and emotional support and distributing hygiene kits in flood-affected areas.
