Playing Futsal for the Fulfillment of Child’s Right to Development


The Dream House Indonesia Foundation routinely organizes sports activities with sponsored children. One of the activities favored by the children is playing futsal. Providing opportunities for children to engage in sports is part of the fulfillment of the second of the four basic rights of children, namely the Right to Development.

The Right to Development encompasses various aspects of a child’s development, including playing, and sports activities such as futsal play a crucial role in the overall development of a child. Playing futsal can contribute to the physical, mental, social, and emotional development of a child.

On Saturday, September 30th, the Dream House Indonesia Foundation, through the Education Center division, organized a futsal match among the sponsored children of the Dream House Indonesia Foundation. The event took place at Tifosi Futsal, Semaki Yogyakarta. Fourteen children from the Jogoyudan Education Center, Tlukan Education Center, and the Kalasan Children Crisis Center participated in this event.

They were not only involved as participants, but teenage children also helped prepare for this activity. With the guidance of mentors from the Education Center Division of the Dream House Indonesia Foundation, they were involved in tasks ranging from registering participants, choosing the venue, and obtaining permission from the parents of the participating children. The active involvement of these children is also in line with another basic right of children, namely the right to participation.

This activity has become a means for children not only to develop physically but also to learn important social skills such as communication, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Through this activity, children from different areas have developed friendships and a sense of togetherness among them.

The Dream House Indonesia Foundation will continue to support the holistic development of children. This aligns with the Foundation’s commitment to supporting the fulfillment of the four basic rights of children as recognized in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
