At Hope and Play we believe it is every child’s right to grow up in a safe and playful environment with hope for a happy future. Our projects help create opportunities for children who don't have this basic right. We focus mainly in the Occupied Palestinian territories and Palestinian refugee camps.
We've created seaside playspaces for children who have never seen the sea. We've built playgrounds in areas which have been battered by occupation and war. We've created children's libraries in some of the harshest refugee camps. Provided Summer Games to over a thousand children in Gaza. Requipped community support centres for disabled children. Funded outreach programmes for children with a wide range of disabilities to help integrate them into society. Sent educational laptops to schools in refugee camps to help provide a richer education. And more...
Our key focus today is with traumatised children in Gaza. We have funded a programme to bring 500 extremely traumatised children back into education, and are currently fundraising to run another.
All our admin costs are funded by our founders, so all your donations, less any credit card or processing fees, will go directly to the projects we run.
Please help us bring hope and play to children whose circumstances deny them both.
