After many positive recommendations, in December 2007 Playground Builders began working with an established Afghan non-governmental organization (NGO). Established in 1994, this NGO receives funding from numerous countries and aid agencies including UNICEF, UNHCR and USAID. In addition to helping Playground Builders establish safe play areas, this NGO assists with healthcare, education and poverty-reduction throughout Afghanistan.
We don’t publish the exact locations of our playgrounds. We are concerned for the safety of the children, teachers and workers. Although there have been no incidents, extremists may attempt to target foreign projects regardless of nature of the project. This is a very hard concept for many of us to accept but it is an unfortunate reality in this country.
Playgrounds are virtually non-existent in most areas of Afghanistan, a fact we are working hard to change!
