Ongoing project, Bubolo Playground.
Play without borders were asked by the organisation Kids of Uganda to help out with designing a playground. And of course we wanted to. In august 2014 we went down to Bubulo to do research, get to know the area, get to know the people, to see what they produced, how they did it and what kind of materials they used. And most important of all, we played with the kids.
This experience gave us lots of information and knowledge about how they play, where they play, who is playing, what they like and what they lack. One year later, in august 2015, the actual building of the playground started. Play without borders plans to go back during spring 2016 to finalize the playground and their work.
The playground is constructed with local wood och localy produced bricks. It consists of 4 main parts mimicking different areas of the village; The market area, the Banafwa River, the sugarcane field and Mount Elgon.
