Mr. Playground to build in Nepal

Mark White's (AKA Mr. Playground's) organization, Playgrounds Of Peace (“POP”), which has previously built two playgrounds in Poland using the KaBOOM! community build model, will be partnering with Hope for Nepal to support their mission and vision by bringing the gift of play to the children in their care. Hope for Nepal operates two children’s homes for young orphans and a transition center for high school and college students preparing to enter the work force.

Besides building a playground, Playgrounds for Peace will help with their educational programs. The team being assembled includes four professional educators, including a Registered Play Therapist. Also, POP will be bringing two professional musicians who will minister to the children and community in song.

If you wish to contribute to this project, contact Mark White.
