…helping children reclaim their childhoods

Save The Date!

Playgrounds for Palestine will hold it’s annual fundraiser dinner on May 4th, 2013 at UPenn’s Hall of Flags in Philadelphia, PA. We hope you will mark your calendars to join us for another evening with friends.  Details will follow in the coming days

We’re Going To Palestine!

In a couple of weeks, Hanan Urick, our newly elected PfP Chair of the Board, will be traveling to Palestine to help launch a new initiative to build 10 new playgrounds in various Palestinian towns throughout the West Bank. 

PfP and Tomorrow’s Youth Organization (TYO) will collaborate with local community groups and contractors to construct playgrounds that are safe, inviting, and stimulating for children. This partnership and projects reflects PfP’s and TYO’s shared commitment to upholding the universal right of children—particularly those living in refugee and other vulnerable contexts—to play and healthy childhood development. 

Playgrounds will be built on donated land and be maintained by local schools, organizations, municipalities, and other stakeholders. Local community members, particularly children and youth, will contribute to the playground design process, which will be led by international playground designer.The playgrounds are expected to be completed by August 2013 and will benefit thousands of children, youth, and other community members.

Congratulations to Emad Burnat and all of Bil’in!

We all felt so proud seeing Emad, Soraya, and Gibreal walk the red carpet.  You reclaimed the Palestinian narrative of struggle with such humanity, incredible sacrifice, and heroic courage, and you carried it all the way to the Oscars.

Thank you to all of Bil’in.
