We are bringing safe, active play opportunities to children outside of the US too. We have already built three playgrounds in Haiti and Afghanistan.
Thanks to the generous support of Sue Weil, a major supporter and donor for Alexandra’s Playground, we are bringing play to children in Haiti. To date we have completed three playgrounds there, are finishing up our 4th, and are making plans for our 5th playground in 2016. We are committed to continuing to build at least one more playground in Haiti each year. Our work there is already touching the lives of hundreds of children and their families who would otherwise not have access to a playground. These playgrounds are located at a Rectory in Thibaue, a school outside of Mirebalais – the only one within a 5-mile radius, in Grand Goave, and in Beudet Saint Croix. Please view our photo gallery for more photos of our playgrounds in Haiti.
In 2011, Alexandra’s Playground funded a playground for a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan through Playground Builders. The new playground benefits the lives of 6,000 girls who attend the school on a rotational schedule. As the only safe place to play in this community, the playground serves all of the local children, their parents and teachers. It provides a much needed safe, central gathering place for families to come together to socialize, play and be active.
