Today is national ‘Play outside’ day here in the Netherlands! Coincidentally, yesterday was also the official opening of the playground and library at Regent, Sierra Leone, by Playground Foundation! We wanted to share some pictures of this colourful event with you. The event was attended by members of the Regent community, the St. Charles’ church and representatives of other official authorities, including the Sierra Leone Football Association.
Unfortunately, the playground is still closed due to the Corona crisis, however the library will open for a small number of children: three or four at a time are allowed to come and read books.
We also have exciting new plans ahead: the next project as part of the playground will be the growing of the flower garden. The children of the Regent community will be actively involved in it.
Best wishes from the We Play team,
Gerda, Ralph, Laura & Arjan
