Glynis commented on Community playgrounds – safe environments for play

Hi Chioma and Susanna - our project is in two districts in Inhambane Province in Mozambique. We work in about 12 villages - some are deep rural and others are closer to a coastal urban area. We would be interested to try out some of the ideas Susanna has described in the villages we work in. We have a training coming up next year on how to place one playground in each village. Maybe we could look at trying some of your ideas Susanna? Chioma, should we write this up as a separate IDEO"idea" maybe?

Glynis commented on Community playgrounds – safe environments for play

Hi Susanna - I work in a CARE International ECD programme in Mozambique - we are planning to build simple, low-cost playgrounds from local materials in the yard of one of the home-visitors we are training. The aim will be for the community to build the playground themselves with support from the home visitor who will have attended a training on how to build and use ropes, tree branches, rocks and found objects such as old car tyres. The areas we work in are deeply rural with little infrastructure it would be really interesting to interact with you on how your ideas in a more developed context could be adapted for our area. Let's talk.
