How Project Play helps kids in Calais

Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 31: “Every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities”

Below is a video about Project Play, who work to provide a safe space for child refugees in Northern France. They are one of the NGOs moving from L’Auberge’s warehouse to the new Collective Aid warehouse, and CamCRAG brings them requested resources on our convoys.

Project Play was created to provide displaced children with necessary safe spaces and the chance to play, learn and imagine. Their volunteers currently reach over 120 children and deliver six play sessions each week in Northern France, promoting resilience, self-worth and a strong identity. Their sessions target core developmental skills for children aged 1 to 18 using a combination of group games, sports, music, creative tasks and formal learning.
