2007 Sport for Peace & Development in the South of Liberia (Maryland, Sinoe & Grand Gedeh)

Right to Play is a Canadian international humanitarian organization that uses sport and play as a tool for the development of children and youth. The sport and play sessions organized by Right to Play in the most disadvantaged communities serve as learning opportunities for participants as specifically designed messages relating to peace building, health promotion and good citizenship are embedded within the programs. Right To Play started to work in Liberia in 2006 in the counties of Montserrado and Lofa. This grant allows them to expand their activities into two counties in the south of Liberia (Maryland and Grand Gedeh) and reach over 25,000 children on a regular basis through the effort of 960 trained coaches.

In 2010, MMF renewed its support to Right To Play for 2 years, enabling the organisation to expand their activities to two additional counties of the South East of Liberia: Sinoe and River Gee.
