1 basketball hoop for a school in Palestine
The money for this gift will help to purchase a basketball hoop for children in Palestine.
At Playgrounds for Palestine UK we believe in the power of play to promote creativity and learning, improve physical and mental health, and bring children, families, and communities together. Buying play equipment, such as basketball hoops will give the gift of play to a child living in Palestine, where children may have experienced war, the demolition of their houses, or the arrest of loved ones. There has been a wealth of research into how play opportunities allow children to build resilience and to heal after traumatic events.
Whilst basketball won’t resolve the impact of these events on a child’s wellbeing, it provides respite and an opportunity to play and exist as a child, away from the adult conflicts surrounding them.
On purchase of this gift we will email a gift card which can be printed off - it includes details of the gift and space for you to write a personalised message. If you don't have access to a printer and would like a hard copy, we can post.
