Project Details

We are planning to purchase a canopy for the school playground, so that it is available to all school children during the rainy days and during the hot summer days. This will increase the time spent by the school children in the palyground area, leading to more healthy activities by the school children, during recess and special healthy activity classes through out the school day. Having the playground available, during winter and summer to the school children will help the children become more active and healthy through out the year, resulting in a healthy environment for the school children. This will impact positively on Elementary and Middle school children, giving them more energy and excersice to spend and perform to lead a healthy day at the school.

Partial Funding Plan

If we don't reach our funding goal, the money raised will go towards buying equipment for the school gym.
