Central to a child’s ability to learn is the stimulation of play. Children must be free to discover, to play and to enjoy outdoor activity. As Maria Montessori famously quoted, “Play is the Work of a Child.”
In partnership with the Rotary Club of Edmonton, LWB has helped to build full playground sets for a total of 5 schools in Belize City, Belize. All of our playgrounds are recycled from various schools across Alberta and we receive them through the Emmanuel Foundation. For more information on the Emmanuel Foundation’s recycled Playground Projects, follow this link to their site. In February 2018 we constructed our largest playground at St Johns Anglican school.
Since 2013, LWB has worked with the following partners in the annual construction of playgrounds at Belize City schools:
- Rotary Club of Edmonton
- Emmanuel Foundation
- Rotary Club of Belize City
- Rotary Club of Belize Sunrise
- Cisco Construction
- numerous other local clubs and agencies
The pictures below are before and after pictures of just one of the school grounds we built on.
