«Children on the Move» has been selected as one of the top innovations in the world in the HundrED Global Collection 2023 report. The report highlights 100 of the brightest innovations in education from around the world.

After being shortlisted last year, “Children on the Move” has made it into the 2023 collection. In this collection, a shortlist of innovations was reviewed by 188 Academy Members consisting of academics, educators, innovators, funders, leaders, and students from 113 countries. HundrED’s Research Team made the final 100 selections from a total of 3,488 reviews based on impact and scalability.

We are proud to represent one of the 100 brightest innovations in education from around the world. It is not only an achievement for “Children on the Move”, but especially for our sport and play-based approach. For 15+ years SA4D uses sport and play in all of its activities, for improving psychosocial health, in early childhood development, in formal and non-formal education, as well as in employment and integration projects.

Since 2017, the Swiss Academy for Development has supported children in improving their psychosocial wellbeing to recover from war-related trauma and rebuild their lives in camps or back home. Through our sport and play-based approach, children acquire skills to deal with daily challenges, actively shape their lives, restore confidence, self-esteem and social cohesion to successfully participate in their communities. “Children on the Move” is a preceding project of “People on the Move” in Uganda, which started last year and also includes adults.
