    Right To Play Women’s Network event to commemorate World Refugee Day


    Right To Play Women's Network convened at Havas Media's state-of-the-art offices at the HKX building to mark World Refugee Day on 20 June.

    Nikki Skipper, National Director, Right To Play UK spoke about Right To Play's life-changing work in 52 refugee camps around the world which is helping children and communities rebuild their lives. She highlighted one Right To Play programme for girls in Lebanon which uses Football for Development to bring host and refugee communities together. The programme boosts girls' confidence, gets them working as a team and helps to foster social cohesion in their communities.

    Right To Play is grateful to EE for supporting the event. Jackie Ronson, Digital Director, and Chair and Founder of the Women's Network, EE, addressed guests and spoke about the importance of women networking, being collaborators and supporting one another.

    The Right To Play Women's Network is helping to tackle gender-based challenges facing women and girls through our play-based programmes. We are removing barriers to learning, preventing violence against girls, tackling exploitation and improving sexual and reproductive health. Collectively, we are championing the causes of disadvantaged girls and developing female leaders.
