Going beyond Playground

We have completed our first community playground by installing a climbing frame. While the adults were a little puzzled by the contraption and wondered what the kids will do with that (“they are not monkeys, you know” I was told by a helper. “they will show you soon enough, just wait and see” I retorted.) the children had no such problems. They knew exactly what to do.

While finishing off the playground we have also constructed a volleyball pitch – well, we’ve started at least. Next trip we will convert the field into a much safer beach volleyball pitch. But until then the ladies and some gents took to volleyball like ducks to the water. It was joy to watch them making such a great use of it and along the way getting better by the day – it’s no wonder as they trained from 3pm to dark (around 6.30pm).
