Global Playground's mission is to raise awareness and share resources with people of the
developing world to create educational opportunities where they do not exist. We are
committed both to funding the education of children in underdeveloped and developing
countries, and promoting the importance of education and cross-cultural understanding
in the developing world. Global Playground helps build educational infrastructure in
these areas and aims to connect students and communities all over the globe. Video edited by Kent Truog.
See what Global Playground accomplished in 2012. At this time,
Global Playground had four school projects in Cambodia, Honduras, Thailand,
and Uganda and was fundraising for a new school in Vietnam. Construction and
inauguration of the Vietnam school was completed in August 2013, thanks to your help.
Global Playground's new technology center in Honduras puts the children
of Villa Soleada in touch with their peers around the world -- an opportunity to
connect, and to explore the world around them. Video edited by Kent Truog.
At the Huay Puung Mai School in Northern Thailand, Global Playground recently built
a library, equipped with computers, that is helping children from hill tribe communities
keep up with school work and technology. Video edited by Julie Rios Little.
In conjunction with World Assistance for Cambodia, a nonprofit organization that
has overseen the construction of over 300 schools in Cambodia, Global Playground
has built a five-classroom school for middle school students in the country’s Kandal
Province. Video edited by Julie Rios Little.
Members of the Global Playground team went to Uganda in early 2008 where construction
of their first school was underway. These are the stories of the children and families
that will benefit from this project. Video edited by Nick Ordway.
