ISSP [2010] : Designing Safe Playgrounds For The Klong Toey Community

Children  who  grow  up  in  slums  face  a  variety  of  challenges such  aseviction,  drug  abuse,  and limited education and employment opportunities that hinder their mental, physical, creative, and social development.  The Duang  Prateep  Foundation,our  project  sponsor,  works  to  alleviate  the  immediate suffering of the children in the Klong Toey slum in Bangkok. The goal of our project  was to design safe playground    equipment    that    addresses    these    developmental    needs.    Our    equipment    designs accomplishedthis goal, while providing additional benefits to the surrounding communities.
