I have been reading about the world's nine million refugee children and the role sports plays in their ability to make it in the larger world beyond the camps. Among the organizations making a difference is NineMillion.org as well as others. One example, Right To Play is an athlete-driven international humanitarian organization that uses sport and play as a tool for the development of children and youth in the most disadvantaged areas of the world.
Right To Play is committed to improving the lives of these children and to strengthening their communities by translating the best practices of sport and play into opportunities to promote development, health and peace. We can all help by becoming more informed about this crisis and passing the ball.
