Right to Play

Right to Play delivers regular inclusive activities, training, and sport and play sessions for children and youth living with disabilities to develop their life skills. The programme also works to encourage positive attitudes and values in the community towards those with disabilities. 

The border province of Tak is the largest of Thailand. It is home to approximately 250,000 displaced or migrant Burmese living in communities across the province as well as 139,000 refugees living in three refugee camps. In Tak, the majority of Burmese are undocumented, leaving them marginalised and excluded from official human services as a result.  

Migrant children living along the Thai-Myanmar border also face social and economic hardships, which are often reinforced when the child has an intellectual or physical disability. As a result, disabled youth are vulnerable to abuse and rejection from their communities. There is a distinct lack of services available for children with disabilities. Because of this, many children miss out on basic education and other physical and therapeutic interventions to help them learn, develop and grow.
