A Chance to Play South Africa is a registered non-profit organisation based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Launched in October 2011, ACTP promotes the right of all South African children to have access to safe, age- and ability-appropriate play opportunities as part of their overall development and wellbeing.
ACTP is supported by international child rights organisation, terres des hommes, Germany, with the support of the VW Works council.
Our vision is a society in which the value of child-led play is realised. Our mission is to create a network and a knowledge base that champions the right to play. We achieve this through distance, face-to-face and virtual training courses; through play forums in which action groups made up of community members work towards establishing enough safe and appropriate play areas for children in their neighbourhoods; and through various advocacy initiatives including the play champions movement.
