Play for Change is honoured to have been awarded a generous gift from First Give, an organization that partners with secondary schools to help students give their time, tenacity and talents to improve their local communities.  A class of Grade 8 students from Paddington Academy participated in First Give's programme, presenting information on local charities for a chance to win a cash prize, to be given to the charity of focus.

A group of students chose Play for Change as their partner charity, and prepared a presentation highlighting the Khelaun Khelaun programme.  "We deserve to win this award because our charity is the best, helping people each and every day," a student said during the presentation.  The group won third place, awarding Play for Change £250.  

Because every pound given to Khelaun Khelaun grants one child access to sports, this award will undoubtably make a lasting impact on the Play for Change community in Nepal.  

Play for Change would like to thank First Give, Paddington Academy, and of course- the wonderful students who put time and energy into representing Play for Change!
