Right To Play is a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. It was founded in 2000 by Johann Olav Koss, a four-time Olympic gold medalist and social entrepreneur. Through sports and games, we help children build essential life skills and better futures, while driving social change in their communities with lasting impact.
Right To Play works in more than 20 countries including Benin, Burundi, Canada, China, Ethiopia, Ghana, Jordan, Lebanon, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Pakistan, the Palestinian Territories (West Bank and Gaza), Panama, Rwanda, Tanzania, Thailand and Uganda. They traditionally enter into countries with the greatest need, and responds to requests for programming by the government and/or communities in those countries. The decision to implement programming is based on a careful assessment of need, organizational capacity and a secure source of funding.
