Hi Dana,
Thanks for your query. Nüdel Kart is part of Playground Ideas, it's a product that the founder created and designed with the help of his global network. We are currently looking for funding and implementing partners and grants such as this to help us get the karts in the hardest to reach communities, such as though impacted by disaster and conflict. The Nüdel Kart comes flat packed and is easy to assemble so with the right partners and funding we believe it is relatively easy to get them to these hard to reach areas. Once assembled the karts are portable and have been tested in some of these environments. The Kart does require a facilitator so we are hoping to get input from INGO's to help with implementation, but you can also train individuals in the community for this role so they are empowered to implement this themselves. Hope that somewhat answers your questions.
Kind regards
Laurette

Hi Lynne,
Thanks for your message. We are hoping to working with local and international NGO's to reach both rural and crises affected areas. In terms of where we start that will be dependent on the success of our conversations with different organisations and our ability to access funding.

Kind regards
Laurette (on behalf of Marcus)
