Barbara commented on Make Inclusive Design Playful!

The literature around "play" suggests that delight is very powerful. Why shouldn't all (urban) children experience joyful delight under a refreshing canopy of trees? More to the point, with ideas such as the one proposed by Mmofra Place, special-needs visitors can be welcomed and cherished.

I had the opportunity to witness this creative idea emerge quite literally from the ground up. By using repurposed materials, the "Kofi swing" has become a gathering spot for ALL kids, their caregivers, Park staff, and casual visitors. What delight inclusivity brings to Mmofra Place in Accra!

Barbara commented on MAP (Market, Mothers & Park) Alliance (Updated Jan 6)

This urban park project can significantly change the face of Accra, and by extension other urban areas where children's play & cultural discovery have been overlooked, forgotten, ignored, or sidelined in the face of poverty or urban pace. The use of an urban green space to easily enhance play, learning, social interaction and health by repurposing local resources is both urgent and welcome on many levels for 0to5 and beyond!
