A project managed by PLAY International
Since 2008, PLAY International has been working with vulnerable communities to promote access to quality education. In 2016, the NGO launched its AMEP programme, which seeks to facilitate children’s access to school and ensure their continued attendance in 15 municipalities across eight provinces in Burundi and to bridge the gap between formal and informal education.

- Promote inclusive education by raising awareness among children and teaching staff about the importance of schooling and the need to tackle discriminatory behaviour
- Inform teachers, local communities and young people about the use of sports for educational purposes
