Right To Play’s Jack Sparrow, the very promising young horse in the stables of Andrew Hoy, three time Olympic Gold Medal Winner in Eventing, endorses the Corporate Ssocial Responsibility commitment of Hasenacher Stud through his name: Right To Play. Using the power of sport and play, the international charity Right To Play provides essential education to disadvantaged children.
Barbara Keller, the director of Hasenacher Stud, has left a strong mark on the charity in her role as the first President of the Swiss branch of Right To Play. Still strongly connected with Right To Play, Barbara is a member of the International Board of the organisation, which was founded by four time Olympic Gold Medalist and social entrepreneur, Johann Olav Koss.
Right to Play teaches children and young people from seriously disadvantaged backgrounds important values and life skills through sport and play, to help and empower them with constructive conflict resolution, disease prevention, mutual respect and understanding and to gain in self confidence.
Through educational activities, these children are encouraged to reflect on their experiences, and to apply practical knowledge and what they have learnt in daily life. At the same time, they learn to enjoy themselves and to experience the carefree moments which enrich our lives.
