CityFilm supports Join for Joy
Join for Joy (www.joinforjoy.net) strongly believes that every child should experience the carefree, joyful energy of childhood. Unfortunately this is not naturally the case for every life. Join for Joy manifests this belief by organizing Summer Camps for children growing up in developing countries.
Through play and sporting activities; music and dance; role-playing and creative exercises, we offer these children a unique opportunity to freely express themselves and really feel what it means to be youthful. Experiencing all that the camps have to offer also inspires and broadens their horizon.
Play is as fundamentally important for the development of a child as schooling and education. It allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination; dexterity; and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play has therefore been recognized (1989) by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child.
Above all, play is a joyful and cherished element of our childhood.
