Playground for Uthando House

Playground equipment is a given thing in many home environments and backyards all around the world, but for the children of Uthando House in South Africa, it is only something they can dream of.

Uthando House is a Place of Safety located at the base of Kruger National Park in South Africa and is a centre for children who are victims of trafficking, abuse or abandonment.

The children have limited access to play-based activities and most will only ever leave the centre to attend school. 

SAVE Projects would like to fund the build of a playground at the centre that allows the children to enjoy free play in their own backyard.

Research shows that outdoor free play gives kids many valuable benefits, including the development of physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills.  A Playground allows children to interact with other peers, the outdoor elements and make up their own play, we believe this is vital for the emotional and physical development and healing of these children.

The social aspects of a playground mean children learn to take turns and exercise self-control waiting for a swing to open up and they can start up conversations with their peers.

Physically a child can overcome fears and with that comes a sense of accomplishment which can lead to self-confidence and an increase in self-esteem.

And mentally, a playground can be a place where a child may feel safe and happy, allowing for channels of communication to open and the healing process to begin.

SAVE Projects have helped with the build of a similar Playground at The Child Development Centre in Hazyview, South Africa.  Further information on this Project can be found on our website :
