The power of playful learning
Join for Joy supports primary school teachers in rural Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, and Zambia by implementing playful learning as a teaching method at school. Through the specially designed training program, teachers learn how to create an inclusive and (gender) equal environment, act as positive role models, and use sports and play activities to address taboo subjects with children. Playful learning encourages children to come to school and stay in school and helps them grow up as resilient boys and girls with a positive future perspective.
This program has been a life changing experience and has opened my mind to a world of possibilities.

Stop Right Now!
In the game Stop Right Now, children learn how to set their limits verbally and non-verbally, but also to respect each other and to stop as soon as someone indicates their limit. In this way children become assertive, they stand up for themselves and each other and they dare to say ‘STOP’ to unwanted (sexual) behaviour.
