Playgrounds

Why Playgrounds?

Play is crucial to a child’s emotional, physical, social, and creative growth. It’s more than a hobby, it’s a matter of life. With one colorful, unique playground, a whole community is transformed, allowing kids to be kids, and to experience a worry-free environment crucial to healthy development. No matter the culture, play is a universal need, an unspoken language that builds bridges to the hearts of the whole family.

We restore opportunity for children to enjoy the kind of play that leads to an encounter with Father God in communities devastated by war or poverty. Our experts determine the best solution for each country we work in—whether a playground designed from scratch or a refurbished playground designed to feel and look brand new.

Our ultimate mission is to impact the lives of kids with God’s transforming hope.

How a playground is chosen for each project

New

New Playgrounds are generally considered domestic projects and are ideal for churches, schools & organizations looking to reach out to children here at home through the power of play. Playgrounds place value on the joy of childhood and help foster a sense of community. This program impacts kids both locally and globally through the power of your purchase.

Recycled

Recycled Playgrounds, which can only be used for international projects, are commercial grade playgrounds that are harvested from parks, schools, & churches. We carefully remove them and completely refurbish each one for re-installation all across the globe. They are ideal for impacting kids in countries affected by war, poverty, disease or natural disaster.
