In Eldoret, Kenya, there are 250 children that are ready to play! Since their playground equipment became unsafe, the orphaned and vulnerable children of Open Arms Village and Open Arms Academy have been waiting to climb, slide and swing.! Your donation will provide a fun, safe and long lasting playground that will help with healing of trauma, development of their wonderful imaginations and strengthening of bodies for many years to come.
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.
