Why are sports and play so important?
Watch children and youth play on International Day of Sport for Development and Peace
Every child should have the opportunity to play, so leading up to the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, children from our programs in India show the power of physical activity in a special music video produced by our country-office team.
“It’s your right. Don’t be afraid to break barriers. We are all born to achieve. Don’t worry about caste, religion or origin, everyone is welcome to join in,” reads the lyrics of the music video.
At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we empower communities so children have a safe place to grow, laugh, learn and play.
Watch to see how sports and other play encourage peace and camaraderie.
