Michael Rose, AM, President, ChildFund Alliance

This is an exciting opportunity. We believe every child should have the right to play, which is why ChildFund’s Pass It Back program was originally established for children in rural and remote communities of Laos and Vietnam. These are children who face significant challenges around poverty and inequality.

Well-designed sport for development programs are a proven way to achieve positive social outcomes, such as building resilience, youth leadership and gender equity. ChildFund Pass It Back helps young people to develop the skills they need to keep themselves safe in what is a rapidly changing environment, and support global efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 16.2 - to end all forms of violence against children.
