Eco-Friendly Tire Playgrounds
This project will build a playground with recycled materials at eight public elementary schools in Bouarfa, Morocco, where there are no playgrounds for young children at schools. Installation of the first playground will be led by the local Peace Corps Volunteer in partnership with a local leader, while the remaining seven playgrounds will be installed, using the first as an example, by leaders and local volunteers from each school.
The Eco-friendly Tire Playgrounds Project was a great success! The community of Bouarfa, Morocco has come together to build eight playgrounds at local elementary schools. The project has sparked a great deal of interest across community members from school principals to groundskeepers to local youth who helped wash, install, and paint the equipment. Word is traveling fast to neighboring communities who are eager to build playgrounds at their schools too.
