Children's Games is
a Sport for Peace and Sports for All program of the Philippine Sports
Commission that encourages the value of sports among the young and developing
character in kids ages 12 and under.
Aside from the usual benefit on physical well-being, the Children's Games aims to promote sports as a tool for peace, unity and harmony which was the very objective from its first edition held in Davao City in May 2017. More than a month after its launch, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recognized the agency in July 2017, for being the first government agency to implement an initiative that has many components that meet their objectives.
In 2019, the PSC was able to hold 22 editions of the Children’s Games in 22 cities across the country, with more than 20,000 total kids benefitted since its inception. It may be pure fun and play, but these teens learn what really matters in this world - strength of character, responsibility, leadership and care for others.
