OVERVIEW OF PROJECT

World at Play aims to bring joy and fun to all the children, young people and adults they work with.

World at Play is training 9 international volunteers at Atlantic College in Llantwit Major, Wales to deliver developmental sport and play. The team will then fly to Croatia, and travel to Kosovo, Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia and back to Croatia to deliver sport and play sessions in orphanages, care homes, Roma communities, homes for those with disabilities, and refugee camps and settlements.

“Volunteering for World at Play was one of the most intense but fulfilling experiences I’ve had. What a fantastic way to start a gap year”  Beth, 2018
