Teams build adventure playground

Stand by Me send teams to visit our work around the world and complete projects that enhance the lives of our kids. Teams give their unique skill sets, talents and enthusiasm and play a vital role in encouraging our staff on the ground. A team’s presence at our projects along with their smiles, hugs and love, help our kids feel special and cared for.

The Burley Group teamed up with Colin, Nigel and Tom to build something exciting for our kids in Bekoji – an adventure playground. Their amazing fundraising and generosity of their skills, time and effort have built an incredible adventure playground featuring slides, swings, monkey bars, fireman's pole and even a climbing wall!

The children have already been making the most of this exhilarating development, spending their break times playing on the equipment with their friends. The playground is bringing tons of fun to the school and keeps our children active while they are not in their lessons. 

The playground apparatus has given our children the opportunity to have fun with their friends which has improved our kids' wellbeing and is helping them enjoy their childhood, something that every child deserves. Thank you to the Burley Group, Colin, Nigel and Tom, this wouldn't be possible without you!

Stand by... almost there...
