Right To Play has received just over NOK 182 million in support from NORAD  which will provide education to marginalized children in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Provides the basis for long-term development work

At the beginning of April, a new collaboration agreement for the next five years was signed between NORAD and Right To Play Norway. NORAD is one of the organization’s most valuable partners, and the agreement is of great importance for RTP’s humanitarian and long-term development work. The amount of NOK 182,825,389 includes support to programs in Ethiopia, Mali, Mozambique, Tanzania, Lebanon and Palestine.

“With long-term and predictable funding, we can work even more purposefully to reach the goal of a world where more children attend school and learn basic skills, increase the protection of children in crises and conflicts, and strengthen children to stand up for their rights and make their own choices” says CEO of Right To Play Norway, Jimmy Vika.

Expected results

The support from NORAD will go to projects that ensure that more girls and boys, including children with disabilities, learn basic skills. It is also expected to increase integration into the target group of play-based and active learning methods to promote children’s reading skills, as well as support girls and children with disabilities outside the school to start and stay in school.

The project supports Global Goal number 4: Good education, with special focus on sub-target 4.1: By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free and equal primary and secondary education of high quality that can give them relevant and real learning outcomes, and the underlying principle. for the sustainability goals that no one should be left out.
