Play is the most important activity of childhood – yet the one adults neglect most
Children are born with a natural ability to play. It’s nature’s way of ensuring they learn and develop. However, for many children, their right to play is at risk – from factors including poverty, unsafe environments and a lack of knowledge about the importance of play for development and well-being.
ACTP is an organisation that advocates for the right of all children to play.
Working with parents, communities, government and children, ACTP promotes the critical benefits of and enables play through advocacy, training, community play forums and play champions.
