Play right and the right to play – Universal Children’s Day 2017

20 November 2017

Sport is a key way to deliver children’s rights, including the right to a full and healthy life and the right to relax and play, among many others. On Universal Children’s Day take a look at how the Pacific Sports Partnerships (PSP) are having a positive impact on children’s lives.

The PSP supports sporting organisations across 15 sports to deliver sport for development programs in nine Pacific countries. The programs help to address inequalities experienced by women, girls and people living with disability and provide opportunities for children to build confidence and fosters social cohesion.
