Inclusive play makes the world a better place!

My name is Ilse van der Put. For more than 10 years I have been working on inclusive play with a focus on children with a disability in the Netherlands and other countries. I’m convinced that Inclusive play empowers all children. Inclusive playgrounds and activities give children the opportunity to meet and get to know each other, learn from each other and make friends.

Although the right to play for all children is mentioned in two UN conventions, the  UN Convention on the rights of the children  (ratified by 196 countries) and the UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities (ratified by 173 countries), for many children with a disability playing together is not yet a reality. Take a look at my Projects , to see how we can make  inclusive play possible for every child!

Let's work together and make inclusive play possible for every child!
