Watch this amazing documentary about the power of play, Sport
Right To Play – Dear Sport,
As a proud ambassador of Right To Play, Dutch-Ghanaian athlete Akwasi Frimpong – who always dreamed of becoming an Olympian – traveled back to Ghana where he encouraged local children to chase their dreams. Now, you can watch Akwasi’s amazing journey in a special documentary, #ThePowerofPlay.
Thanks to a partnership with ASICS, we are proud to share Akwasi’s journey home. He grew up in poverty near to where these children live, but has risen to become a winter Olympian for Ghana and the founder of its bobsled team.
Driven by a generous heart, he wanted to encourage children to never give up their hope for a better future. He went back to Ghana, to visit a school using Right To Play’s programs to help children and find out how it was transforming their lives.
Abdul-Latif wants to be a journalist one day. Akwasi talks with him about how a good education will make that possible.
Right To Play has helped over 32,000 children in Ghana. You’ll meet just a few of them as they bare their hearts to Akwasi about how they are discovering their inner strengths through the power of play. They include:
Hellen, who survived malaria and now wants to become a doctor so she can save others from this terrible disease.
Abdul-Latif, who wants to become a journalist so that his neighbours can have a newspaper that tells their stories.
Ayisha, who is studying to one day be a teacher but has to resist her parents’ pressure to marry until she can finish her schooling.
Watch how Estheline inspires her students to learn through play.
I hope you enjoy this special opportunity to see how the children of Ghana are building a better future for themselves.
