Challenge

Ranked 184th out of 188 countries in the HDI classification, Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world. Education needs are immense in this country where 1 in 2 children do not complete primary education. (Source : Burundi Ministry of Education)

Solution

In this context, where sport has been declared a "vector of national reconciliation" by the government, PLAY International raises awareness among children, especially the most vulnerable, about the importance of school and the discrimination they face.

Long-Term Impact

This project gives children a chance to positively change their representations and behaviors in order to bring them back or keep them in school. PLAY works with local partners including schools and youth clubs to ensure that the work continues after this project finish. 2 pedagogical kit "Social Inclusion" and "Academic Success" have been created with and for education professionals and 210 trained professionals have acquired skills in facilitating these socio-sport sessions.
