Play It Forward
Emmanuel Foundation for International Community Development exists to create hope for a better tomorrow for individuals, families and communities in developing countries. We have three main arms of service through which we seek to accomplish this: Playground Projects, Shipping Containers and Community Development Projects.
"Play It Forward" is our cornerstone program of
bringing recycled playgrounds to children who have had little opportunity to access and enjoy developmental play. We believe that every child should have the 'right to play' and the laughter and well-being of children is central to a vibrant community.
Our "Distribution Center" gathers and distributes provisions to needy communities around the world which will support their enterprises of sustainable development. Such goods as medical equipment, educational supplies, bicycles and clothing are shipped where they are helpful in the building of strong healthy communities.
"Community Development" is where we get involved further by supporting local initiatives to transform their community through sustainable development. These partnerships may range from safe water projects to the development of schools, orphanages or health centers.
