Young dreamers deserve the right to play to feed their development, and you get to see that in the following Children Believe video, featuring kids from our program countries around the world.

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But, for children, play is serious learning,” said Fred Rogers, a former kids’ television host.

At Children Believe, play is a big part of our program work where we believe in the importance of engaging and playing with children to foster their cognitive development and mental health.

You can help support learning through play by donating to our gift catalogue today.
