Play360 Playmakers are Changemakers
Creating a better educational experience for children is the heart and soul of our play360 playmakers. But doing the hard work to make it happen takes a certain kind of community driven, inspired person who believes in the power of play and the strength of community in bringing a project to fruition. We find these spectacular change makers in the form of teachers, parents, neighbors, organizations and students.
In the rural communities of Belize schools are single
room structures and kids attend classes only a few hours a day. A local elementary teacher reached out to play360 with the idea that a playground would help the children enjoy school more and might increase attendance rates. She gathered the community and in just a few short days a project took root in the hearts and minds of the community.
