Playground Builders creates safe spaces where kids can be kids, communities can feel empowered and new possibilities can find a strong foundation. And, our playgrounds are built, installed and maintained by local people in the communities the playgrounds serve. So, not only do we provide safe places for children to play but we also provide much-needed jobs in societies in crisis and inject money into the local economy. This also helps to restore pride, ownership and enterprise capacity in these unstable communities.
The positive effects of our work are easy to see. Our philosophy is based on involving local people in the playground building process and minimizing overhead costs. We use local contractors to build and install the playgrounds and have them source only local materials. And, we have qualified, reliable people on the ground to oversee the site selection, building process, inspection and maintenance.
