In this photograph taken by Pawel Krzysiek in Burundi in 2012 at a UNICEF-supported project at a site outside Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi, sport is used to educate vulnerable displaced children. Sport is a powerful tool to help improve the lives of children, families and communities.

Sport creates safe environments where children can play, express themselves and learn; helps educate children and their parents about social issues and rights; and provides valuable psychosocial support in times of difficulty.
