Playground repurposing

The Power of Play has been donated a used playground for this project. This playground was in a school in West Kelowna BC, and got replaced by a brand new playground. Now instead of having this playground end up in the landfill we will refurbish and repurpose this playground to use it for our project.

We will use any elements that are reusable after refurbishing, and we will purchase the missing pieces.

The playground is currently stored in Merritt BC, about an hour away from the location. In next three weeks we will complete the refurbishing process and then we will ship the playground to the location.

Beside this playground and the additions, we will build the shade structure with sitting area, and some water feature.

This project has been completed

This project was completed on Feb/18/2021

We built a playground with 12 play elements, a football and a volleyball field for the students of Mubuga G.S. school and all other children in the region.

We also created a garden where we planted many fruit trees and vegetables so children can learn about agriculture and nature preservation. The vegetables will also be used to make lunch for the students. 

Now the 842 students and many other children who are mostly child labours in the villages around have access to this playground. The Mubuga G.S school will be maintaining and repairing this playground with support from us. 

In this sustainable project around 80% of the metal we used was upcycled, we also utilized 103 used tires.

Agreement between The Band and TPOP

Lytton First Nation band and The Power of Play have come to the agreement to build this project with support from the band in approximate of 15% of the total cost. This collaboration will be in the form of volunteering, so throughout this volunteering there will be opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of play, and to allow the children speak the voice and express their ideas. We will also give teens a chance to volunteer and develop new skills. Additionally elders will get involved to create a gathering space to pass on their arts and skills to the new generation.
