For millions of children living in some of the worst conditions in the world, sport and play can help them to develop self-esteem, build confidence, learn tolerance, and give them hope for a better future.
In a 2009 evaluation in Benin, Ghana and Mali, we learned that children participating in regular sport and play programs are 62 per cent more likely to report feeling good about themselves versus 49 per cent of children that do not participate in regular activity.
