March 2013 saw a 40 foot container arrive in Gulu, located in northern Uganda. The container was filled with 3 separate playgrounds. The playgrounds were set up at 3 different primary schools with a total population of 3200 students and 46 teachers. Since being set up, the playgrounds have attracted many students to come to school early to have more time to play on the equipment. The playgrounds have also acted as a community hub, giving individuals of all ages a place to come, relax and interact with each other. Overall the project was a great success and has led to thousands of children to have the ability to play on safe and fun equipment.
The project was in cooperation with The Mary Tidlund Foundation, The Ssubi Foundation and Emmanuel Foundation.
