Government schools, slums, shelter homes
Sustainability of the Solution
The playscapes are built by upcycling materials like used tyres, metal drums, recycled plastic boards that increase the lifespan of such materials. The process also involves sourcing materials and labour locally which cuts down carbon footprint and supports local economies.
Expected Outcome of the Solution
A playground has the power of becoming the identity of a school, locality or even a village. Setting up a playground in slums, shelter homes and government schools has shown an increase in attendance rates, decreased drop-out rates and increased outdoor time for children. Indulging in the different activities of a playground greatly benefits the physical and mental well being of a child. Learnings like collaboration, negotiation, conflict resolution are all skills children learn outside a classroom, on the playground.
