OBJECTIVE: To build a sustainable Community Sports Education program that will promote gender equity between both boys and girls.
Through sports activity and interactive discussion, the Let’s Play! community sports education program teaches boys and girls important life lessons and values embodied in the Olympic ideals, such as; teamwork, good sportsmanship, fair play, gender equity, respect, and problem-solving.
Our first Let’s Play Community Program was established in June 2010 in Gatagara, Rwanda. We currently have more than 100 boys and girls participating.
“One of the benefits of sports is that it brings youth together. Sports help people solve their differences and problems. Young people can change their attitude by playing sport.” - UNICEF
