A few months ago a California team of highschoolers started a playground at the orphan after school program in Phokeng. This is a place where orphans from the community come after school for a meal, mentoring, and to hang out with friends.
This playground gives them a nicer place to hang out and play. Derek, the local YWAM missionary, and I have been working on finishing it whenever we have time. Finally, we finished it this week.
This is me with some of the orphans. (Yes, I know my hat looks funny but it keeps me cool.) Martha is to my left, she is the local woman who started this program.
A few weeks ago we had the Stanphill family from the states come over to build a playground for the shelter in the memory of their infant daughter who passed away a few months ago. They took off all the old rotting boards from our playground and replaced them with new wood. They also expanded the playground to allow for another 7 baby swings and 4 toddler swings. They did a beautiful job and we are so thankful for their hard work.
This is during construction.
This is the finished product.
