PSNI and the Network share a common program, PLAY for FUN, LEARN for LIFE that goes beyond the game to teach:


How the body works and how best to care for it with age appropriate exercise, good nutrition, hygiene, health literacy, prevention of both noncommunicable and communicable disease


How education, self-esteem, gender equality, teamwork, respect, conflict resolution and cultural awareness can lead to positive change and peaceful solutions for individuals and communities


How the training, techniques and sportsmanship of the world’s most popular game empower us to work together and master skills for a healthy and successful life

PSNI and the Network aim to support the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals through their common program and other adjunct program activities and projects.
